What is Greater Green Bay S.O.U.P.?
Greater Green Bay S.O.U.P. is a forum in which community members can share their ideas for how to enhance the quality of life for residents in our communities. Dinner is served at the forum and a micro-grant is awarded to one individual/organization from funds collected at the forum.
How does it work?
YPAC, a committee of Current Young Professionals Network, will host a dinner featuring soup and 3-5 grant proposals made by community members for projects that will enhance the quality of life in greater Green Bay. Everyone in attendance will contribute $5.00. In exchange, they will receive a delicious meal and the opportunity to decide which project they want to fund. Proceeds from each meal become the grant that will be awarded to the chosen project, which will be voted upon by all present at the dinner. The minimum award for the winning project will be $500 with potential to receive more depending on attendance… The more people in attendance, the more funds available to award!
