Your gifts make the extraordinary possible.

Doctor Patient Hug

After receiving extraordinary care at Cooper, our patients and families often ask how they can say “thank you”.

One way to show appreciation is to make a donation.

Gifts can be made in memory of someone special or to thank a particular Cooper team member, department, care team, or supporting a program of your choice. 

When you support Cooper University Healthcare, you help us deliver:

  • Research that leads to cures
  • Innovative diagnostic and treatment options
  • New technologies not available elsewhere in the region
  • Care that goes beyond the ordinary for patients and their families
  • Educational programs that develop the region’s top healthcare professionals

Thoughtful gifts of all sizes are an investment in Cooper and health care in the region. 

Invest with purpose. Plan your legacy with Cooper.

We will partner with you to develop a plan that aligns with your philanthropic goals and interests.

Naming Acknowledgements

Have your philanthropy recognized: your generosity will be secured in history and recognized for years to come. Make a gift in your own name, company name, or in honor or memory of a caregiver, friend, colleague or loved one. 

Giving with Tax Benefits

Gifts of stock, bonds and shares in mutual funds may allow you to make a larger gift than would otherwise be possible. This can provide a two-fold tax benefit. You will not pay capital gain tax on appreciated stock, plus you can receive a charitable tax deduction for the value of the donated stock.
