Josef Cooper Changemaker Award

Honoring Joe Cooper

Without Joe Cooper, the CDS we know and love would not exist. Joe and his wife, Tracy, were the leaders of a group of parents, trustees, and educators who founded Children’s Day School as a non-profit to nourish and celebrate diversity and promote justice and respect for all people. Joe had a life-long commitment to student activism and it is this commitment to action the CDS community wishes to celebrate and instill in future generations of CDS students.

About the Changemaker Award

To honor Joe, CDS has established the Joe Cooper Changemaker Award for an alumni who models the change making spirit as embodied by Joe throughout his life. Any alumni(a) of CDS is eligible to receive the Changemaking Award as an acknowledgment of his/her/their work to continue the legacy of action instilled in CDS students. Questions? Email: alumni@cds-sf.org

The deadline is September 30 to nominate yourself or a peer for the Changemaker Award. The Changemaker Awards Committee will review all submissions and make a final decision on the year’s recipient. The selected recipient will receive a $500 honorarium and will be invited to attend the CDS events of their choice to include a Friday Assembly or the Leadership Donor event.
