Purses For A Purpose, Inc.
- Washington DC Chapter -
Hi everyone! My name is Kate Bishop, I am the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer of Purses for a Purpose Inc. and co-leader of the Washington DC branch.
My story with Purses for a Purpose began in March 2021 when I began volunteering alongside Shayna Rutman at Thrive DC in Columbia Heights, DC. We attend American University together and as part of an academic requirement for the Community-Based Research Scholars cohort, began devoting our Wednesday afternoons to assisting Thrive DC. Shayna informed me about Purses for a Purpose and I immediately fell in love with the organization's mission of helping women experiencing homelessness.
During the summer of 2021, Purses for a Purpose became a 501(c)3 organization, officially recognized by the IRs. We have four branches around the country working towards one common goal: to remind every woman of their value to society.
Thank you to everyone for your support and wanting to help us in any way possible. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out!
