History & Vision

The Emily Foundation is a private family foundation endowed to support innovative research and its potential for breakthrough discoveries in the prevention, treatment, and cure of deadly diseases. The family, like most, has seen close family members suffer and succumb to diseases that were later cured because of the vision and perseverance of dedicated researchers. The Foundation desires to support such researchers and advance their efforts to find cures for those now suffering from untreatable diseases.
