PhilaSoup is an all-volunteer run nonprofit, committed to supporting classroom teachers and students from across all sectors in Philadelphia. We support teachers from public, private, parochial, and charter schools in doing great work with their students, by providing them microgrants of up to $800. PhilaSoup hosts tri-annual community soup meals where we learn about the projects of innovative teachers who are selected to present their ideas to our attendees; together, we vote on who will receive grants of various sizes, based on their proposed impact. The grants are comprised of our ticket sales for the event, as well as PhilaSoup's matching of up to $500 for each event. Our events provide vital funds directly to local teachers, while creating a supportive family of educators and the broader Philadelphia community.
