About the Foundation

The Bob Emig Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, was started in 2004. Founder Aaron Emig, Bob’s oldest son, created the foundation to continue his father’s work in helping youth develop well-rounded lives by providing them a healthy sports experience.  He loved sports—as a participant, coach and sports writer—and felt these experiences were a contributor to the successful family and professional life he built.

 Our Vision

 Inspiring Youth.
Transforming Lives.

Our Mission

Promoting the well-being of youth
through sports and education

We believe in providing opportunities for youth to enjoy the many benefits of a sports experience including having fun and developing skills that they can use throughout their lives.  We encourage “going beyond the game” to allow for that learning experience.

We are fortunate to have such an outstanding relationship with a first class organization like the Bob Emig Foundation. Their support has helped us launch our boys and girls Soccer program, provide supplies for our summer camp, and provide learning opportunities for our youth. The JJK Foundation appreciates the continued and unwavering support of the Bob Emig Foundation.”
