Drake Cooper is Accepting Dream Big Applications for 2016

Wake up Big Dreamers!

Our Dream Big application for 2016 has launched. Do you love your 501c3 organization and your community, and want to get the word out? Let us help.

This will be year nine for our Dream Big program, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the relationships we’ve built with past recipients. In 2016, we worked together with PATH to build a storytelling campaign bringing awareness to women’s health. Rooted in our work with them as a Dream Big partner, we are continuing to foster our relationship and further our marketing efforts to build up communities and young women around the world.

We will accept applications until the 31 of October; then our staff will review and start the process.  If you have any questions, please email dreambig@drakecooper.com.

Here is a snapshot of some of our previous year’s participant organizations:


PATH is the leader in global health innovation. An international nonprofit organization, we save lives and improve health, especially among women and children. We accelerate innovation across five platforms—vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, and system and service innovations—that harness our entrepreneurial insight, scientific and public health expertise, and passion for health equity. By mobilizing partners around the world, we take innovation to scale, working alongside countries primarily in Africa and Asia to tackle their greatest health needs. Together, we deliver measurable results that disrupt the cycle of poor health.


HODIA’s programs are designed to foster self-reliance, education, and inspiration through healthy self-management of type 1 diabetes, often in outdoor environments. Our staff, teaching by example, provide mentoring and support to participating children and teens, and their families, in a safe, healthy and respectful environment.

Usful Glassworks

Ūsful Glassworks is an innovative nonprofit organization that addresses social, environmental and economic needs in the community – one person and one glass bottle at a time. Our mission is to help people with employment barriers find jobs through our glass recycling program.

Boise Bicycle Project

With Boise Bicycle Project, we believe Boise has the potential to be the “Bicycling Capital of America.” With dirty hands, forward thinking, and community engagement, we will do our darnedest to help it reach that potential every day.

Learning Lab

At Learning Lab, we aim to teach and encourage adults who struggle with literacy, help families discover the joy of learning, so all children start kindergarten ready to read, create hope for brighter futures and build a stronger, more self-sufficient, and engaged community for all of us.

Boise Rescue Mission

Since 1958, Boise Rescue Mission Ministries has been restoring faith, hope, and family across the Treasure Valley. Today, we serve the homeless and addicted of Boise, Nampa, and surrounding areas.
