CooperCompanies, the parent company to CooperVision, will match employee donations of up to US$5,000 annually, made to the charities Optometry Giving Sight and March of Dimes.
“Giving back has long been part of our culture at Cooper and it’s a privilege to partner with Optometry Giving Sight and March of Dimes to continue this tradition of giving. Both are world-class charitable organisations doing amazing work to bring better health and well-being to people in need,” said President and CEO Albert White.

CooperVision is a longstanding partner of Optometry Giving Sight (www.givingsight.org), which specifically targets the prevention of blindness and impaired vision due to uncorrected refractive error. CooperSurgical selected March of Dimes (www.marchofdimes.org) as its global charitable partner earlier this year, recognising the organisation’s legacy of leadership, impact and innovation in the fight for the health of all mothers and babies.
In parallel to these globally recognised causes, the company says it will continue to encourage local philanthropic efforts, supporting communities in which employees live and work. These contributions are part of Cooper’s alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, including a focus on good health and well-being as well as establishing complementary partnerships.
