When we say summer, you say Soup! We are gearing up for our 16th Soup Ottawa event and we want you – yes you! – to apply.
Whether you’re an individual, a group, or an organization aspiring to make a difference in our city then we want to hear about it. Tell us how your amazing initiative will work to benefit the community. We welcome both new ideas and established projects, all you have to do is apply.
What’s in it for you? Successful applicants will be offered a spot to present at our next Soup Ottawa event, where they will have a chance to win funding for their project (funding varies on attendance). Our last winners, Project RMORE, took home $1,030! By being a presenter, you will also have the great opportunity to generate awareness about your project, receive feedback, field questions, network, and possibly connect with future partners.
The application process is simple, and fairly quick. For more details on how to apply, please see: www.soupottawa.ca/apply/.
Applications are due by: Sunday, May 20th.
How does it work? Soup Ottawa is a micro-grant event that focuses on two things: good soup and funding great community projects. For $10, every attendee gets a bowl of quality soup and bread, and one vote. The community project presenter who receives the most votes wins every penny from the pool of cash. So, if 100 people show up, that’s $1000 for the winning idea!
Soup Ottawa’s next event will take place Thursday, June 14th at the Hooley’s Pub.
