Get Involved. Today.

The Cooper Connor Endowed Fund was established to support the pioneering efforts of Dr. Truog and his team at the Center for Infant Pulmonary Disorders at Children's Mercy Hospital. Your awareness and advocacy is appreciated. Please keep us in your thoughts and we hope to see you at the next CCEF event.

Every Dollar Counts.

The CCEF goal is to raise $500,000 by August 7, 2011 (what would have been Cooper's fifth birthday) to serve as an ongoing research funding endowment. And with over $100,000 donated already, CCEF is off to a great start. The 501c3 nonprofit structure is an ideal endowment vehicle for CCEF to ensure that every dollar donated is applied directly toward the Center's primary goal of providing promising research efforts and new therapies to lessen the effects of lung disease on babies. No donation is too large or too small, and every dollar you donate will make a difference.
