How the Organization Got Started
The organization got started in February 2007 after Rebecca Kahlenberg and Heidi Bumpers organized a group of moms to serve dinner at The Children's Inn at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda. Moms were very enthusiastic about that event so Rebecca decided to formalize the concept of a group of moms who would regularly do volunteer projects around the community. MoverMoms was incorporated as a non-profit based in Maryland in the spring of 2008. In the winter of 2009, MoverMoms became a public charity that is exempt from Federal income tax under section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
The name MoverMoms is in part an acronym for Moms Vounteering Experiences but also a term connoting that we are a group of moms who work to make things happen, in our case things that make a positive difference in our community.
