The Trustees and staff of the Cooper Foundation are pleased to share Cooper House with qualified nonprofit organizations.
We hope you will find the House a peaceful environment in which to celebrate your successes and plan for an even more fruitful future. The House is often used for staff development retreats, board meetings, or strategy sessions, and even parties ~ free of charge.
In order to best accommodate nonprofits, the House may not be rented by individuals, businesses, or churches.
To help you consider whether the site is appropriate for your needs, we have attempted to set forth some of the advantages and responsibilities associated with use of the House.

During World War II, Madison Cooper hosted weekends at home for servicemen referred by the local USO. His long-time housekeeper Bertha Walton prepared wonderful meals for the men, and Cooper engaged his guests in long conversations by the living room bay window or on the front porch. We are pleased to continue this welcoming tradition with local nonprofits.
As well, the Foundation enjoys
