The JEGS Foundation

Through numerous personal experiences, the Coughlin family recognized that cancer affects nearly all of the global community in some way. To raise both cancer awareness and cancer research funding, the Coughlin family established the nonprofit JEGS Foundation with 100% of donations going directly to cancer research.

Support Breast Cancer Research

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual effort to increase cancer consciousness. Of course most people are aware of breast cancer, yet many do not devise a plan of attack to detect the disease. And, if there's one thing we know, early detection is critical. As a natural extension of The JEGS Foundation, a portion of the proceeds from JEGS brand products is allocated specifically to breast cancer research. In the spirit of community, the yearly employee health fair at JEGS hosts a mobile mammogram unit. For resources and support to embrace life before, during, and after cancer, please visit:

The Columbus Connection

The JEGS Foundation donated $10 million in 2013 to Ohio State's Foundation for Cancer Treatment & Research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center in Columbus, Ohio. To honor the donation, the new lobby of the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute was named "JEGS Foundation Lobby."

JEGS is much more than a catalog, website, or race team...JEGS is a worldwide community of street, track, and trail enthusiasts who share a passion for performance vehicles! When you buy JEGS, you become a member of this community.

JEGS was born of one man's love for racing and pursuit of high-performance auto parts. That love led him to launch JEGS Automotive in 1960 with a simple standard: provide the absolute best customer service. His principle soon became a commitment that is the cornerstone of our company today.

At JEGS, you'll connect with experienced auto technicians ready to answer your automotive questions at your convenience. We guarantee your satisfaction and include lifetime support! That's what JEGS is...An incredible selection of brand-name performance parts that ship for free and the same day when ordered by 11:00 pm EST.
