Still Point Theatre Collective created the Martha Cooper Fund to support Still Point’s Imagination Workshop, which provides theatre and music workshops tailored to the needs of adults with developmental disabilities. This fund will provide monies for workshop materials, subsidize under-funded programs, and provide scholarships to students of limited means.
Martha Cooper, a long-time friend of Still Point’s Founder, Lisa Wagner-Carollo, contracted polio at a very young age. She was confronted with physical challenges throughout her life and became a dedicated advocate for persons with disabilities. Martha was active with JONI and Friends (a Christian International disability organization) and a founding board member of L’Arche Chicago.
Martha and her husband Dale were always enthusiastically supportive of Still Point, from its inception. We honor Martha’s generous spirit by creating this fund in her name, and dedicating the fund to continuing her lifelong passion as a champion for people with disabilities.
