PhilaSoup is an all-volunteer run nonprofit committed to supporting classroom teachers and students from all across sectors in Philadelphia. We support teachers from public, private, parochial, and charter schools in doing great work with their students by providing them microgrants to help fund classroom projects. 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. Why we're fundraising This year we increased our maximum grant amount from $599 to $800. This is exciting news! However, we need your help! In order to provide over $7,000 of grants each year, we at PhilaSoup work extremely hard to keep our overhead low and to fundraise effectively so that our teachers walk away with as much funding for their dream projects as possible. What your donation supports Your donation - whether it is $5, or $500 - goes directly into the hands of teachers, to do great things with their students. Every penny counts, and we are so thankful to you for supporting our work at PhilaSoup, and most importantly the wonderful work of Philadelphia teachers. For more information, go to or reach out at
