• "Helping those

    with special needs reach their full potential"

    Craig & Christine Cooper - Founders of The Cooper Foundation

  • Who We Are

    Craig & Christine Cooper are the founders of The Cooper Foundation. They believe in a "grass roots" type of philanthropy. "We don't want the moneys donated to get used for paying corporate overhead. We want to help with real-time needs"

  • Why we decided to get involved

    Our daughter Cassidy is 13 years old. She has a diagnosis of Autism. She is mostly non-verbal and is in need of supervision most of the time. She is a sweet and loving child.

  • What We Are About

    "Grass Roots" approach to giving to others

    Our mission is to assist children and young adults with disabilities get the help they need. The assistance may be funding for therapy, a summer camp, or devices/equipment to help with everyday living. We want to provide the "extra help" these individuals need to reach their full potential.

     

    We are looking at "real world" situations to make a difference in the lives of the families we help. We know we can't help everyone, but we will do our best, one individual at a time.

  • How we help

    Jessica tells us about her son Simon.

     

    It has been a little over a year since our son was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. While this news was devastating, the hardest part was looking ahead and wondering if we would ever hear him speak again. It was his speech regression which first sent red flags up about his condition. At age 3, he began preschool and therapies full time. We were on a waiting list for the technology to be signed out to Simon, and it was then we were introduced to The Cooper Foundation and after only 48 hours received a brand new iPad along with the app Simon had been awaiting from the county. This allowed him to jump right into his therapies with the tool he had been missing: a voice. It has been a joy to see him learn, sort, request and even begin to read all because of this device that is always by his side. A favorite moment of mine was when he learned to press 'I love you' in response to a time when I said I loved him. This is something every parent looks forward to hearing and it was so sweet to see him understand exactly how to respond. We're so grateful to The Cooper Foundation and excited for all the children who are being impacted by their generosity.
