Jane Lorin founded the HAPI Foundation in 2013 to bridge the gap of health and social services for the residents of affordable apartment communities by bringing convenient programming right to their doorsteps. With a background in commercial real estate, manufacturing, and vending, Jane brings a wealth of business savvy to her work in philanthropy. Jane received her B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Southern California and certificate in plant-based nutrition from Cornell University. As an entrepreneur with a passion for healthy eating and gardening, she started with a seed in a community vegetable garden and developed a greater movement to change lives through on-site health and social service programming. The HAPI Foundation strives to meet the comprehensive needs of historically underserved communities in a culturally responsive way. Jane is also actively involved in local philanthropic efforts to combat homelessness alongside the Jewish Funder’s Network and the Jewish Poverty Network. Since 2015, she has served on the Advisory Board for Interface Children and Family Services of Ventura County, where she has helped to raise awareness and funds through their annual gala, securing over $500,000 annually.
Jane enjoys sharing her love of cooking and gardening with her daughters and friends. Her favorite ways to practice good health: meditation, working out, biking, hiking, and walking her dog!
