Toledo SOUP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization made possible through the efforts of a dedicated volunteer committee and the generous support of donors. 100% of the proceeds raised at events are granted out the same evening to implement the idea that receives the most votes.

To afford each of these events Toledo SOUP has an ongoing operational fund. The operation fund includes costs for outreach, materials, venue, and development. Since we do not raise money for ourselves during our events we rely on the generosity of our supporters.

If you believe in Toledo SOUP’s impact and want to support future events, please consider becoming a donor or volunteering. More information to come on the opportunities and benefits to joining the Toledo SOUP Team.

Together, we empower residents to shape the future of the region, promote community-based development, foster critical dialogue, and instill neighborhood pride.
