Hi... I'm Penelope Poppers!
I'm the founder and former Executive Director of Lucie's Place, a home for LGBTQ young adults experience homelessness. Through hard work, stubbornness and a refusal to accept no, I made the dream of Lucie's Place into a reality. It was through Lucie's Place where I learned to not only appreciate, but truly love Development work.
After Lucie's Place, I raised money for our local Planned Parenthood affiliate, where Planned Parenthood in Arkansas had the best fundraising year in the history of the organization in AR!
Want to know what it's like to work with me? Here is my DiSC profile and it is... incredibly accurate.
Now, after doing this incredible work, I want to help make your fundraising dreams come true!
Personally, I also love Arkansas and all of the outdoor beauty it has to offer. Hiking is my favorite thing and in 2018, I hiked the 223 miles from Oklahoma to Pinnacle State Park in Little Rock! You can watch that video below!
