PhilaSoup is a non-profit that provides micro-grants (up to $800) to teachers in Philadelphia schools to fund classroom projects that enhance the learning experience of their students. We do this by hosting quarterly soups, where we invite the community to come together, share a meal and listen to three to four teachers present their ideas in need of funding. The attendees at the soup vote on which project they like best, and the winner receives the largest portion of the grant, but each teacher walks away with some funding! Grants are funded by ticket sales to the soup, with a matching donation from PhilaSoup. Since 2012, PhilaSoup has hosted over 30 events and granted over $30,000.
We are currently seeking individuals to join our team who can help us with Social media management/Public relations.

To bring together diverse sectors of the Philadelphia education community as the convener of innovative ideas and mutual support, ultimately enhancing the learning experiences of our students.
Vision: To create a positive professional environment that values and convenes educators from diverse backgrounds, and brings creative and exciting ideas to life in classrooms across the city.
Our Soups: Participants come together for a simple soup meal. Everyone brings $15, which becomes the grant for the night. During the meal, educators present their ideas for projects they would like to fund with the night’s microgrant. Each presenter has 3 minutes to present and then a few minutes to answer questions. At the end of the presentations, everyone votes for the project that they would like to give the largest portion of the grant to. Every teacher receives a percentage of the funds, and PhilaSoup matches the ticket sales to make grants even bigger!
We'll work with your schedule.
