Earl “Skip” Cooper, a longtime advocate for Black business and social justice, has launched the Earl “Skip” Cooper Foundation (ESCF) that will offer a range of resources to serve humanity. 

According to Cooper, ESCF aims to enhance the quality of life for people through business creation, spiritual enrichment and “pivotal advantages that lead to future success.”  

“ESCF will focus on bridging generational societal disparities pertaining to business growth and development, academic institutions and systemic racism.  Also, ESCF will partner with organizations, institutions and individuals that have a demonstrated ability and expertise to serve humanity without bias,” explained Cooper. 

Other areas that the foundation will cover include informative programs on business growth and development, financial planning, resource expansion, webinar/podcast production and veterans’ support.  

Cooper, who served more than 45 years as chair of the Black Business Association, welcomes individuals and organizations to join him in this initiative and ESCF embarks on raising funds and in-kind contributions to formally begin operations.
