It is with heavy hearts that the SOUP committee announces the cancellation of our scheduled May 15 event focused on small business fundraising.
We’ve reflected on our themed-event format and realized that it’s not working as well as we’d hoped for the community we serve. We also understand that it’s difficult for our community to support three SOUP events a year.
The committee will take the spring and summer to regroup and recruit additional volunteers, and we’ll be back in the fall with an event that will knock off your socks. Going forward, we’ll schedule bi-annual events to maximize our fundraising efforts and the impact they have on our community.
All proposals submitted for this round of funding will be kept on file and considered for the fall event. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we’ll happily connect you with any resources we can to help you achieve your small business funding goals.
We couldn’t be more grateful for the support you’ve all shown us and our micro-grant applicants over the years, and we thank you for your understanding now.
