My story

IDEA SOUP is a micro-granting dinner celebrating creative projects in Phoenix. For a donation of $5 and up you receive soup, salad, bread, and a vote. You will hear from presenters who will share their ideas looking to make a difference in the lives of Refugees in Phoenix from arts, urban agriculture, childcare, social entrepreneurship, education, transportation, work readiness etc. We eat, connect, share resources, and vote on what project you think should win the money gathered from the night. When the n...ight nears to a close we count the ballots and whoever has the most votes takes home the money from the door. Winners come back to a future IDEA SOUP event to tell the audience how their project went, how they used the money and what impact the project had on the community. Each dinner will be a unique experience brought to life by a volunteer committee. • Residents and supporters make a suggested donation of $5 at regular Phoenix-wide IDEA SOUP dinners • Three pre-selected proposals working on projects that will benefit the neighborhood present their proposals • Over a dinner, attendees cast their vote for the project they want to help fund • The project with the most votes goes home with the money raised from the evening GOALS & VALUES: The goal of IDEA SOUP is to offer a safe space where every idea is valued and where people can gather and share an affordable, healthy, and cultural meal. IDEA SOUP strives to encourage conversation, relationship building and resource sharing while supporting creative community projects in Phoenix. We value democracy, community, collaboration, creativity and action. The community decides what to focus on and what to celebrate. At the end of the day, someone always goes home with an envelope of money, but IDEA SOUP is so much more than that. IDEA SOUP is a community-centric approach to empowering and mobilizing its citizens to affect positive change within the Refugee community. This model will result in a Refugee friendly community that builds upon the already established services. With the help of the grant money this will be a self-sustaining project that results in a monthly IDEA SOUP lending to more ideas. We are FAMILY FRIENDLY! IDEA SOUP- Phoenix is open to all ages the little ones even get to cast a vote for their favorite idea! Submit Your IDEA Please use the link below to submit you IDEA to be considered for the SOUP.
