Your gift can change the world now and Well. Into the Future.  
Give Today.

The Cooper Institute is a small but mighty force, helping to change the face of healthcare across the country through the power of research, education and advocacy.

For nearly five decades, The Cooper Institute has provided the science behind the philosophy that exercise is medicine. We have shown the world the positive effects that health and fitness have on quality and quantity of life.

A gift to The Cooper Institute is one of the most important investments you will ever make because it is an investment in the health of generations to come. Our children are facing a shorter life-span due to chronic conditions and obesity resulting from poor health and inactivity. This means trouble for our future workforce and even our nation's security as most young adults are not fit for military service. We are working to change that by building healthy habits so they can be work-ready, service-ready and life-ready as adults.

We investigate the relationship between fitness and wellness, inform the public about the latest research findings, inspire people to make healthier choices to create a global impact for better health now and Well. Into the Future.

Our work is made possible by the investment of thoughtful and committed people like you who share our vision for a healthier future. Your donation to The Cooper Institute helps supports life-changing research and education so you and your family can live healthier, more active lives now and Well. Into the Future.

Thank you!
