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 honor Daniel's devotion to help others change their lives for the better, our mission is to help those seeking a life of recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Through local fundraising events, the Daniel Copersino Foundation, Inc. provides funding to non-profit charitable substance abuse treatment centers, provides grants for individuals in need of treatment and brings substance abuse awareness to the community. The Foundation is run by a Board of Directors who work on a volunteer basis. They are dedicated to carrying out the Foundation's mission by building relationships with substance abuse treatment centers, support groups and other resources and providing this information to the community.
