About the Foundation
The Chuck Cooper Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit dedicated to honoring the legacy of Chuck Cooper by helping further the education of our young people. The mission of The Chuck Cooper Foundation is to continue the legacy of Charles “Chuck” Cooper, the first African-American drafted into the National Basketball Association, by awarding graduate-level scholarships and by providing comprehensive leadership development, professional skills, and opportunities to underserved students.
As he approached his graduation from Duquesne in 1950 with a bachelor’s degree in education, Cooper signed on with the famed touring all-black Harlem Globetrotters team. On April 25, 1950, Cooper was selected in the second round of the NBA draft by Boston Celtics owner Walter Brown. When an associate pointed out that Cooper was black, Brown answered that he didn’t care whether Cooper was “striped, plaid, or polka dot.”
The 6-foot, 5-inch, 200-lb. Cooper made his debut with the Celtics on November 1, 1950, and he went on to produce a strong rookie season. He played in 66 games, averaging 9.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game and sparking a renaissance in the Celtics’ drooping fortunes. Cooper formed bonds with his teammates, including future Celtics great Bob Cousy, with whom he would sometimes go out in the evening to listen to jazz concerts. During his basketball career, in addition to playing with the Celtics, Cooper also played with the Milwaukee Hawks and the Fort Wayne (Indiana) Pistons. While with the Pistons, he played in the 1956 NBA Championship.

Prayer and Praise are the two Wings of Spiritual Power. There is no conflict. Phil. 4:6 “In everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” Col. 4:2 “Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with Thanksgiving.” Psalm 22:3 “Thou art Holy O Thou that inhabit the praise of Israel.” Psalm 34:1 “I will bless the Lord at ALL times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” John 15:8 “Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit. “By the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name.” Every time we give praise and thanks to the Lord, we bear fruit. (Jesus said a tree that bears no fruit is good for nothing…)
