Who We Are

The Cooper Foundation supports the patients, services, research and educational programs of Cooper University Health Care. By partnering with the community, we help Cooper thrive and do more for the people of South Jersey — from the River to the Shore and beyond. Generosity allows Cooper to deliver research that leads to cures, growth and development that transforms communities and care that goes beyond the ordinary for patients and their families.

Transforming Our Community

Cooper has called Camden home for more than 130 years. We serve the City and the greater community through a network of programs and services aimed at advancing the health and wellness of patients and their families. Importantly, we don’t just treat people when they are sick. We continually seek out ways to prevent illness and enhance the quality of life for our community.

Enhancing Patient Care

Each and every day, Cooper’s healthcare professionals provide expert care to our patients and their families. Funds raised by The Cooper Foundation enhance patient care by supporting a variety of funds and programs to purchase new equipment and technology, further research and education and support patient-centered care programs that result in better patient outcomes.

Inspiring Tomorrow’s Leaders

As South Jersey's leading academic health system, teaching and training the next generation of medical professionals is a key part of Cooper’s mission. Our physicians serve as faculty members of Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, sharing their knowledge and expertise with the physicians of tomorrow. These physicians can have a powerful impact on countless patients' lives far into the future.
