Lori Warren

Director, Marketing & Communications

Communicating for Good

As Director of Marketing & Communications Lori brings to REDF over 20 years of experience helping nonprofits and foundations increase the impact of their work by embracing the power of branding and strategic communications. Lori started her career in the for profit sector, managing accounts and conducting qualitative research at advertising agencies in NY and SF. Lori’s move into the nonprofit sector was driven by her firm belief that the principles of marketing could be used to benefit society, not just encourage consumption, and she has been turning that belief into reality ever since.

In her spare time, Lori likes to hike in the many beautiful open spaces and state parks that abound in Northern California, ride the waves in Southern California, cook, enjoy time with friends, laugh, and ponder the human condition. She graduated with honors from Rutgers University with a BA in psychology and received her MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business with a concentration in marketing and decision science.
