IMPACT

As of 2015, SOUP events have raised more than $100,000 that have gone directly to community projects. Past SOUP winners have started nonprofits, local businesses, after school programs and park clean-ups.

SOUP offers a space where people can connect. The rest is up to attendees, but wonderful things can happen when people come together, and SOUP stories are evidence of that.

In SOUP’s 100+ dinners our diners have helped fund 45 projects, 39 nonprofits, and 25 for-profit enterprises. At least 31 of these projects would not have moved forward with their initiatives if it wasn’t for SOUP.

Breakdown of ideas that have received funding:

  • Art:26
  • Land Use: 16
  • Entrepreneurism: 28
  • Social Justice: 17
  • Urban Agriculture: 18
  • Education: 37
