is a way of life

Every year the PUSO Family uses its proceeds from our annual Swish 4 A Wish basketball tourney to host a "Thanksgiving Turkey Day Assist" for the underserved community in the Washington D.C. Metro Area. Since the launch of this program we have served approximately 200 families currently living in homeless shelters by providing freshly cooked Thanksgiving meals, warm gloves, haircuts, surprise presents for the kids, and most importantly our time and care.

About Us

The P.U.S.O. Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in March 2017 and registered in January 2018 in the state of Virginia.

The word “puso” is a Tagalog (Filipino) word which directly translates into the English word “heart”. However, it has a more powerful and personal meaning for this organization as P.U.S.O. is an acronym for the Purposeful Unconditional Service to Others whose mission is to provide hope with a purpose.

Since its inception, the P.U.S.O. Foundation has directly served over 20,000 lives around the globe through the support and involvement of its local and global volunteers, college outreach program and corporate sponsors.

"Our love for others is our grateful response to the love God first demonstrated to us." - 1 John 4:19
