“Discover where your passion lies. Act on it. And you will accomplish great things.” - Carolyn A. Lynch
It saddens me to announce the untimely death of our beloved friend, mentor and leader Carolyn Lynch. She died Thursday, October 1 from complications following a recent onset of Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Carolyn, tenacious and determined, was confident she would beat it, chose to quietly seek treatment and surround herself with immediate family.
Carolyn touched so many lives and we were blessed to have her as the co-creator, President and Chief Executive Officer for the last 27 years. The Lynch Foundation embodies her core values and faith. Over the last 18 years I had the privilege of her mentorship, nurturing, support, and friendship. Carolyn was incredibly grateful to lead the work of the Lynch Foundation and work alongside our Trustees, staff and partners to achieve dozens of amazing accomplishments. It is important to honor her, continue on the path and make her proud.
We ask that you keep the Lynch Family in your thoughts and prayers.
In honor and service,
