We all struggle to find the money to fund our projects – the frames, the travel expenses, the 2,000 pounds of clay. We also all have small excess incomes – the daily coffee, the small change at the end of the day, the dinner out. By combining these small excesses, we can fund projects that need more than that small excess.
Every month we come together to eat, fund an exciting project, and converse about economic sustainability in the arts.
$10 will get you a meal and a vote in the grant-giving process. $5 will go towards the grant; $5 will help offset the cost of the meal.
If you wish to be considered for this month’s SOUP grant, please submit a proposal of no more than 300 words to email@example.com and join us for dinner. Everyone attending will have an equal voice in determining who receives the grant, which will be awarded at the conclusion of the meal.
