Sam Kooperman Endowment

Published Thursday, June 27, 2019

Sam Kooperman has a love for the Jewish community and, especially, its teens and young adults with whom he began his social service career. As a tribute and honor to Sam, the Federation board of directors established the Sam Kooperman Endowment. The fund provides scholarships for experiential programming that allow Jewish young adults to study in Israel. The award is for youth and young adults living in the Mahoning and Shenango Valley region, though consideration may be made for an applicant whose family resides in the region. In 2018, the Endowment gave out three scholarships: two kids from our area received awards to go to Emma Kaufman Camp and one was given a scholarship for an internship in Israel
