CLASS is a multimedia cause marketing platform that highlights people, places and organizations using their platform for positive social impact, while giving back to the charities they support.
Altruism is at the center of all we do.
The CLASS business model is based on five pillars -— Compassion, Living Consciously, Altruism, Service and Solutions.
Founded by Leslie Frisbee, CLASS comprises a team of industry leaders who possess a wealth of experience and backgrounds in all sectors of the luxury market, including fashion, jewelry, fine dining, wine and spirits, upscale travel, high-end real estate, and other such goods and services.
What makes us unique is that we also care deeply about social and environmental issues. “Luxury with a Purpose” is the CLASS tagline. Our celebrity interviews and feature articles about individuals, corporations and nonprofit organizations — which use their high-profile position and platform to do good in the world — are meant to be entertaining and informative, as well as inspiring, and even a call to action.
We believe purpose is the new luxury.
Through our philanthropic arm, The CLASS Experience, we create campaigns that raise awareness and give back.
Our question is, what is true class? The answer is yours to discover and share.
