CARPER COMMUNITY FOUNDATION.
We are the Carper family of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and represent the Carper Community Foundation. The roots of our foundation started as a homegrown fundraiser in our backyard nearly 10 years ago, but through the generosity and support of local partners we have been able to expand our fundraising efforts and make a tangible impact here in our community.

WHAT DRIVES US.
Our dedication to this cause is in loving tribute to so many in our community that have battled cancer, but especially we honor our mom Kathy Carper. She lost her long-time battle to breast cancer in 2001, but her amazing courage and strength of spirit continues to inspire those her knew her. We were supported by so many in our community and this is our way of giving back.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY.
We remain committed as an organization to ensure our fundraising efforts help those right here in our community. As such, we donate our funds to local community cancer foundations; including the Panhandle Health District, Kootenai Health Foundation Patient Support Fund and Susan G. Komen Idaho. The funds donated to the Kootenai Health Foundation will be used in the Cancer Patient Support Fund, which has the greatest financial need within the cancer center and aims to remove financial barriers that would prohibit a patient from getting the care they need. Often this money is used for gas cards, necessary pain medications not covered by insurance, co-pays, cab rides and sometimes even groceries or new shoes for kids. Funds also go toward providing FREE lifesaving mammograms to those who cannot afford this service, and breast cancer research so that one day, we’ll find a cure for this deadly disease.
