LEMO FOUNDATION

501(c)3 NON-PROFIT DESIGNED FOR STUDENT ATHLETES TO RECOGNIZE THEIR POTENTIAL

OUR GUIDING COMPASS

"LEMO PHILOSOPHY"

"DON'T EXPECT TO ACCOMPLISH YOUR DREAMS IF YOU'RE NOT WILLING TO HELP OTHERS ACCOMPLISH THEIRS."

"PHILOSOPHY"

WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY

Potential is equally distributed but opportunity is not.

Founded in 2008, LEMO Foundation is a Bay Area-based nonprofit that exists to close the opportunity gap for student athletes. LEMO ensures that all student athletes, regardless of income, can access the supports, resources, and experiences they need to thrive. We serve as a comprehensive all-in-one destination for students to engage in sports, education, and community programming that models and cultivates the mindsets, habits, and relationships for success. Through a supportive campus and enrichment programs, we enable student athletes to play, learn, and grow to their full potential.

STUDENT-ATHLETE FIRST

theory of change

If we engage student athletes through business/entrepreneurship…

 AND 

Provide them with a safe, supportive environment that exposes them to a range of life paths + nurtures the skills, mindsets, and networks for success

 THEN 

They will be inspired to dream big + have the tools to learn, grow, and perform at the highest levels

 THEN 

Student athletes recognize and fulfill their potential

 THEN 

All student athletes can accomplish their dreams.
