About Us

Founded in 1998 by the daughters and son of Lynne Cohen, the Lynne Cohen Foundation exemplifies the life force and passion of its namesake. Lynne loved being a mom. From playing with her kids, to encouraging their life explorations, Lynne served as her children’s guiding light and inspiration. She endowed each of them with a profound sense of responsibility and compassion.

Lynne battled for 5 long years to stay with her children, but ultimately succumbed to ovarian cancer. Determined to honor their mother’s memory, Lynne’s children founded the Lynne Cohen Foundation to fight for women like their mother and families like their own. At just 21 years old, Lynne’s youngest daughter, Amy, became the driving force behind the project. Twenty years later, she remains dedicated to delivering the foundation’s gifts to those who need them most.

“I always strived to be a best friend, no matter how great or how crummy my day was. When I look back, what matters most is that I was there for the people I loved.”

-Lynne Cohen (1945-1998)
