Welcome to the DAE Foundation
The DAE (Delores and Estelle) Foundation was founded by College of Charleston Hall of Famer, Jermel President, in 1999. As a former student-athlete in the Lowcountry, President understood the need for skill development programs in his community. Determined to educate and inform young basketball players on the opportunities and resources available to them, the DAE Foundation was born.
Jermel President and the DAE Foundation are continuing their mission to educate student-athletes, their parents and the community about issues affecting student-athletes through the educational podcast, 3RIPLE 3HREAT. Season 02 premieres in early 2022. Subscribe now so you never miss an episode!
