The Leonard-Litz LGBTQ+ Foundation is growing!

Andrew Mitchell-Namdar has recently joined as our newest Trustee. Andrew is the Co-owner and Chief Marketing Officer for Mitchell Stores. He is devoted to a number of charitable organizations mostly focused on LGBTQ equality and Breast Cancer. His current board service includes the National Board of Directors for Lambda Legal, World Health Clinicians, which runs the Circle Care Center, the Breast Cancer Alliance, and Pink Aid, which he Co-Founded in 2010.

He joins Founding Trustees Elliot Leonard and Roger Litz, along with Jeff Arnold and Executive Director Colin Hosten as the Foundation prepares to double its charitable giving in 2022.

In the words of Elliot Leonard, “Andrew brings not only a wealth of knowledge and a deep and broad professional network to our organization, but also a dedication and commitment to philanthropy, on a personal level, and through his family.”

Andrew grew up in Wilton, CT, and currently divides his time between Stamford, CT, and New York, NY, with his husband, Dr. Isaac Namdar, and beloved dog Bitsy Mae.

The Leonard-Litz LGBTQ+ Foundation was created to help fund organizations that advance the interests and well-being of the LGBTQ+ community, with particular emphasis on the following focus areas: Health & Wellness; Crisis Intervention; Racial Justice; Advocacy & Community; and Social Assistance & Programming.
