The Joseph Lapinski Foundation

Perpetuating a family tradition of charity and compassion

The Joseph Lapinski Foundation (JLF) is a charitable assistance program founded and operated by the grandchildren of Joseph A. Lapinski. In his example, the JLF strives to honor his spirit and humble integrity through the growth of a fund that will offer continued support to those in need. To make a positive impact on the quality of life in the local communities of our Members, JLF supports programs and causes that improve human health, familial relations, and the environment.
