The New Era Cap Foundation (NECF) represents the philanthropic arm of New Era Cap, LLC which was founded by Ehrhardt Koch in 1920 and is currently led by 4th Generation CEO, Chris Koch. Formally established in 2016, the Foundation serves as the vehicle through which Chris Koch and the New Era Family give back to the communities in which the company operates.  

The fundamental belief of the New Era Cap Foundation is that impact thrives when people unite. Our five primary pillars of support strive to foster a sense of family and unification within local communities and the organizations that support them.
