Find your inner power by helping others

Cole Buehner - a kid who lived life to the fullest


It wasn't until after our son lost his life that we learned of just how  many lives our son touched. We have heard testimonies and read posts about how our son helped others and even saved their life. Cole had personal struggles of his own, yet he used that to his advantage to reach out to others to let them know that they were not alone. He offered them HOPE. He gave them a reason to get help...

Cole's Hope Foundation gladly accepts donations to help us keep the spirit of giving others HOPE alive. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization so your contributions will not only help kids find HOPE, but will be tax deductible as well. Thank you!!

For anyone who knew Cole, his smile and his laugh were contagious. His message of HOPE made each person feel special. Share your story here about how someone impacted your life, how someone gave you HOPE, how someone saved your life. Let others know that they are not alone. 

Cole's Hope Foundation is seeking businesses, community members and organizations to help sponsor students! Ten students with special needs and/or special circumstances were awarded $1,000 scholarships. We are seeking sponsors to help provide college essentials to help offset their financial cost for school supplies! Click here for more info
