Turning tragedy into positive change and inspiration:

The catalyst for creating the Jonny Copp Foundation was the tragic loss of three extraordinary individuals, Jonny Copp, Micah Dash, and Wade Johnson. They lost their lives in an avalanche on an expedition in Tibet in 2009. The spontaneous outpouring from the around the globe created a mandate for sharing and continuing their work.

The Foundation will strive to keep their memory and dreams alive. They will remind us that our lives are precious and brief and that each of us has the power to realize our dreams and make a positive contribution to the world.

We are a non profit organization dedicated to providing opportunities to bring creative expression and adventure to life. We will accomplish this by offering grants, outreach programs, exhibits, and a forum that stimulates individual creativity, intellectual promise, respect for our environment, and the spirit of adventure.

Our goal is to enable individuals to realize their full potential while creating positive change around the world.
