The Cotillion Society of Detroit Educational Foundation (TCSDEF) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2009 with the mission of enhancing the total well-being of children and youth in the metropolitan area of Detroit, Michigan. Our focus includes social graces, health awareness, self-esteem and civic responsibility.

The Debutante Club for young ladies and Men of Tomorrow group for young men are two of our signature programs focused on developing these areas within youth. In addition, we sponsor classes in Etiquette and a Charm School.

Our yearly events have become mainstay in the community and we continue to evolve  them to grow the foundation and extend our reach.
