Featured Testimonial

Investing in the Future

"I established the Jeanne M. Coppola Endowment for Education to help benefit education in the future. The fund helps teachers meet immediate needs they see in their classrooms daily: books for students who don’t have many at home, an alarm clock for a child who gets ready for school on their own in the morning, or lunch money for someone whose parents can’t cover the cost of school meals.

The Foundation provides many avenues for giving back, and I encourage others to get involved." - Jeanne Coppola
