DETROIT (AP) -- Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores is donating $250,000 to support the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy.

The funding announced Tuesday from Tom and Holly Gores aims to boost the growth and development of the public charter high school in Detroit. The money is expected to be used for infrastructure improvements, personnel recruitment and retention, and other needs.

The school was founded by former NBA player Jalen Rose. After playing at the University of Michigan as part of the Fab Five, Rose played for six teams during a 13-year NBA career, including six years with the Indiana Pacers.
