Ursuline graduate Lisa Tavares founded PopUp Funds. Here’s how she tells it: “I’m a normal stay at home mom. I keep the house going, create a lot of Pinterest fails, volunteer a little too much at my kids school and try to balance our family life.” In 2016, her friend was diagnosed with cancer. She designed a bracelet to sell. Then she came up with the idea of PopUp Funds, an online sales venture. She envisions it as a way to sell school movie tickets and neighborhood t-shirts while collecting for church retreats.
