501c3 Statement

COPE24…Changing Our Parenting Experience is a grassroots, child advocacy organization dedicated to promoting the need to make parenting and child development education a national priority. As a non-profit 501(C)3 organization, donations to COPE24 are tax-exempt, and COPE24 complies with all 501(C)3 rules and regulations. We work directly with Family Consumer Science teachers (FACS) producing reality-based documentary style videos on family elements that can lead to child abuse and neglect. These videos are utilized in high school classrooms across the nation.
COPE24 began a lobbying effort in the state of Missouri in 2022. We comply with all regulations limiting spending of these efforts to less than 20% of our expenditures. This effort is to change the “Health” requirement for high school graduation, in Missouri, to “Health and Family Education.
COPE24 does not attempt to influence nor participate in electoral politics and we do not endorse candidates for public office. We are a non-partisan organization whose lobbying efforts are solely directed towards policy-makers on the need to create healthier families by educating the future parents of America.
COPE24 has never and will never jeopardize its exempt status by exceeding the federally mandated threshold. Within these limits we will continue to fulfill our mission to “Make Parenting Education A National Priority”.

What does the program include?

We’ve taken 10 very common frustrating parenting situations and put them into a program, so that we can begin discussing with our youth the realities of parenting. This program includes:

  1. Teacher/Instructors manual meeting all national curriculum standards
  2. Manual also includes student worksheets and pre/post student surveys
  3. 10 parenting scenario videos. Each parenting video situation is approx. five-minutes in length. There is one video situation for each of the 10 chapters of this program

The teacher/instructor would begin the class by showing one video. Each scenario will escalate to the point of abuse, neglect, or dysfunction. The video is then stopped and the teacher/instructor can turn to class asking….what went wrong? What other choices did the parents have? What will you do?
