IMPACT

As of 2016, SOUP events have raised more than $130,000 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 150+ dinners our diners have helped fund 57 projects, 48 nonprofits, and 27 for-profit enterprises. At least 33 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: 35
  • Land Use: 19
  • Entrepreneurism: 30
  • Social Justice: 22
