Anne Lynch started out as the Office Manager for Three Rivers Community Foundation in September, 2001, after graduating summa cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh with a BA in Anthropology (with a History minor).  Now the Executive Director (2019), she has helped TRCF become a true force in the activist communities in Southwestern Pennsylvania.  Having moved here from Slidell, Louisiana, in 1997, she’s adopted Pittsburgh as her home.  In addition to her work at TRCF, she ran her own catering business (The Vegan Goddess), and was the co-founder of the Three Rivers Vegan Society.  She was also previously the Local Coordinator of Greater Pittsburgh Pagan Pride Day.  She is unapologetic about her beliefs in equality for all – including non-human animals.  She has served on the boards of several local animal rights organizations, helped to organize dozens of animal rights and environmental events, and has spoken about animal rights at local high schools, colleges and universities, and even at a conference at American University in Washington, DC.  In her not-so-spare time, she enjoys reading (primarily nonfiction) and cooking.  She has two cookbooks out, both available on Amazon.

Hello! My name is Kara Hoffman and I am a graduate intern at Three Rivers Community Foundation. I am currently studying at the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Social Work with a Community, Organization, and Social Action (COSA) concentration. I have a passion for serving victims of discrimination, oppression, and injustice in any form. I am also a Pittsburgh native and a proud lover of bridges, pierogi, and Steelers football. I enjoy engaging with the progressive social change community!
