About the Foundation ~ our mission
Founded in the name of Daniel Copersino, the Foundation was formed and became a New York State non-profit organization on January 17, 2019 and is an IRS 501(c)(3) charity. To carry on with Daniel's passion to help others and see people change their lives for the better, our mission is to help those seeking recovery from substance abuse and addiction. Through local fundraising events, the Daniel Copersino Foundation will provide funding to charitable substance abuse treatment centers, provide grants for individuals in need of treatment and bring substance abuse awareness to the community. The Board of Directors work on a volunteer basis and are dedicated to seeing the Foundation's mission carried out by being a resource for the in need and by building connections with New York and out-of-state substance abuse treatment centers. The Board is also dedicated to bringing substance abuse awareness to the community.
