The Cooper Foundation Women’s Board

It was 1919 when a volunteer auxiliary of community women came together to support the work of the caregivers at Cooper Hospital. Since then, the Auxiliary has grown to become the Women’s Board Committee of The Cooper Foundation and has raised millions of dollars for the Children’s Regional Hospital at Cooper, and other hospital initiatives.

Over the decades, Board members have organized a variety of events, all benefiting Cooper. In recent years, the Board played an instrumental role in helping to fund renovations to the pediatric unit in the hospital’s Kelemen building, making it a brighter place to be for our littlest patients.
