I give back because I feel I owe a debt to Cooper Union. Had it not been for Cooper Union and the education it gave me, my life would have been much poorer and less rewarding. Using the IRA rollover provision, I was able to make a lasting contribution during my lifetime. With the proceeds of my IRA distribution, my wife and I created an endowed fund that will provide scholarships to students in the Albert Nerken School of Engineering for generations to come. This manner of giving is rewarding for me, and will give future students at Cooper similar opportunities.
