Betty B. Louie established and funded The Kim and Harold Louie Family Foundation in December 2005 because of her desire to honor the memory of her parents and to fund qualified organizations engaged in healthcare, including but not limited to, those organizations caring for and supporting disabled people, organizations engaged in medical research and such other organizations that seek to improve the conditions and technologies for sick and disabled people. In addition, Ms. Louie, through the Foundation, hopes to support organizations promoting organized religion. Ms. Louie is also passionate about education, and she is especially committed to the promotion of youth and underserved and underprivileged groups, by among other things, granting scholarships to qualified individuals to attend post-secondary vocational and/or educational institutions. Most importantly, because Ms. Louie’s father, Mr. Harold Louie, was a former WWII veteran, and because of Ms. Louie’s involvement in servicing disabled veterans in her professional career, the Foundation gives special consideration to all military members and their families, for their dedication and service in defending the democracy of the United States and their selflessness so that other citizens of the U.S. can continue to enjoy this land of opportunities.
Ms. Louie spent her formative years in Cleveland, Ohio, where she graduated as valedictorian of her high school class and attended Case Western Reserve University. After college, she came to California in 1974 and now considers California to be her home.
