Copley and his family also were major benefactors to art and charity in San Diego. Their name is on many of the city's cultural institutions, including its symphony hall and modern art museum.

The family had four publishers spanning three generations. Ira Copley, an Illinois businessman, bought The San Diego Union in 1928 and was publisher until 1947. His son, James Copley, took over until 1973 and James Copley's wife, Helen, was publisher until in 2001, when she named David Copley to replace her.

The Union, a morning newspaper, merged with the Copleys' afternoon paper, the Evening Tribune, in 1992.
