The Cooper Cornerstone Society is a philanthropic initiative supporting the life-saving work of the MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper.

We salute the names of Major Gift Donors (gifts of $100,000 or more) on our Building Hope Donor Wall, a permanent legacy in the Center’s first floor lobby. We will recognize our Inaugural Donors (donations of $1,000 to $99,999) on a second floor donor wall which lists those who pledge through June 30, 2015, at which time the wall will be closed.

Every donation funds research, patient access to clinical trials, our Patient in Need Fund, new technology and supportive services. And of course a donation inspires others to give.
