Born in New York City and raised in Miami, Ms. Sweet has been a resident of Southern California since the mid-1960s. She visited Israel and the Technion for the first time in 1989 on a trip focused on Technion science and technology. The impact of that visit inspired her first gift to the University, a scholarship in honor of her parents’ birthdays. And she became hooked. Her generosity and hands-on involvement have kept growing unabatedly.

Ms. Sweet has been engaged with the ATS and the Technion on the local, national, and international levels. She is the immediate past president and current chairwoman of ATS – Southern California. She served on the ATS National Board of Directors for more than 20 years and previously co-chaired the Campaign Resources and Public Affairs Committee, the National Programs and Missions Committee, and the Marketing Committee. On the international level, she sits on the Technion Board of Governors.

Enthusiastic about bringing others to the Technion, she has co-chaired numerous programs throughout the years including the 2022 Women of the Technion Mission, the 2018 Technion World Tour China, the 2017 Technion World Tour New York City, and the 2007 Technion Mission to Berlin and Israel.

Ms. Sweet is a Technion Guardian, a designation reserved for those who support the University at the highest levels. Her gifts include the Janey Sweet Apartment in the Undergraduate Student Village and the Janey Sweet Doctoral Fellowship Fund, among others. In recognition of her commitment to the Technion, she was a awarded a Technion Honorary Fellowship in 2007.

She is a graduate of the University of La Verne with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, and a one-time mortgage broker and owner of Pacific Coast Funding. In addition to her commitment to the Technion, Ms. Sweet supports the arts, Jewish and Israel-related causes, and women’s health and reproductive rights.
