Remembering Tedd Lesch through the HRC Foundation's Intern Scholarship Fund
Though HRC reaches millions of people every day, we touch those millions of lives through the work of just a few hundred full-time staff here at headquarters and volunteer leaders across the country. Every single one of our HRC leaders is essential. We work together as a family. And the loss of any one person affects all of us.
Tedd Lesch, HRC's Associate Director of Federal Club, passed away in July of 2014. Tedd was an incredible asset to HRC, bringing a career of merchandising and sales experience to this organization, and skillfully stewarding one of our most important and member-driven revenue streams for more than two years. Prior to joining HRC’s staff full-time, he was a long-time volunteer in Southern California as well as a member of HRC’s Board of Governors.
Tedd didn’t just do his job, he lived and breathed HRC. Whether volunteering at a pride, a dinner, or an event here at the building, he was always willing to lend a helping hand and a wry smile. Tedd helped make this workplace feel like a welcoming community for new staff and HRC veterans alike.
Making a gift in Tedd's memory is a wonderful way to celebrate his life, his work and his lasting legacy in the fight for LGBT equality. Your generous gift will support the Intern Scholarship Fund of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. Upon making a memorial donation, Tedd's family will be notified of the contribution you made in Tedd's name.
