Parent Donors

Photos from the Parent Donor spring reception

At The Cooper Union, your child is receiving an unequaled experience and education. Gifts from parents are essential to providing the first-rate faculty, labs, exhibitions and career services that all students rely on to accomplish their academic goals.

Benefits of being parent donors include exclusive receptions, private tours of student and faculty exhibitions and more.



If your scholar is graduating, we encourage you to consider honoring their time at Cooper with a dedicated seat in the Frederick P. Rose Auditorium. The Rose Auditorium is a superb multimedia space located in 41 Cooper that is used by Cooper as well as the New York community for conferences, lectures and seminars. With a gift beginning at $1,000, a plaque inscribed with a name and/or a message of your choosing will be installed on a chair in the Rose Auditorium. It is a wonderful graduation gift to commemorate your graduate’s entry into Cooper’s illustrious history.

If you are interested in making a gift for a chair or of any amount, please see the Ways to Support section of the website or contact development@cooper.edu or (212) 353-4104.
