The JEGS Foundation

Around the world, cancer affects many people, changing the lives of families and communities forever. Having experienced this firsthand themselves, the Coughlin family established the nonprofit JEGS Foundation in 2003. The goal of the JEGS Foundation is to help raise cancer awareness and to ensure 100% of all donations made go towards funding cancer research.

Decades later, the JEGS Foundation continues to run strong, having contributed millions of dollars to finding a cure.

Support Breast Cancer Research

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is commemorated every October to reinforce the importance of early detection and preparedness against the disease. While many are aware of breast cancer, not everyone has a proactive approach for early detection. To support and raise awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, JEGS changes their logo from the traditional yellow color to pink. JEGS also includes complimentary pink decals with select orders, as a dedicated portion of the proceeds from JEGS branded products is directed specifically to breast cancer research. Additionally, the annual JEGS employee health fair proudly hosts a mobile mammogram unit.

The Columbus Ohio Connection

In 2013, the JEGS Foundation made a monumental $10 million donation to Ohio State's Foundation for Cancer Treatment & Research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center. In gratitude, the main entrance of the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute was christened the "JEGS Foundation Lobby".
