We are always accepting donations to help Detroit SOUP run it’s dinner and get more money into the hands of local projects. We get some support from foundations to run our dinners with little or no cost to the diners. 

All money raised through paypal goes to help pay for the cost of putting on the dinner, paying local artists to share or perform at soup, pay overhead costs, etc. We recognize that there has been a lot of press and recognition for the work that we do but that doesn’t often translate to financial support.
