Summer SOUP '17: Neighborhood Revitalization

Neighborhood revitalization often consists of a lengthy series of community improvement projects, rather than a single, small initiative. However, just one committed person can start the reinvestment process by persuading friends, neighbors, and community partners to dedicate themselves to taking the reasonable steps toward a better place to live.

We are excited to present five projects that advance the cause of Neighborhood Revitalization and it’s contributions to our city.

When a neighborhoods suffers neglect, the effects aren’t isolated. Reinvesting in Central Ohio’s neighborhoods, sparking growth, and improved community creates ripple effects for the entire city. Neighborhood revitalization provides a viable solution to the cycle of struggle making it impossible for many to achieve the American dream. Columbus SOUP seeks to advance the causes for these communities and highlight their contributions to our city.

Projects can include (but are not limited to): architecture, awareness initiatives, clothing, community building, community gardens, culinary arts, cultural promotion, dance, digital arts, education, electronics, employment initiates, fine arts, film, metal working, music, nonprofit social enterprises, theater, photography, sculpture, wood working, workshops and writing.

Help fund events!

Be a sponsor

Whatever isn’t donated must be purchased. Because 100% of the entrance donations are used to fund the SOUP grant, we need funds to pay for other items, such as print materials, bowls, spoons, plates, table clothes, and pretty much anything else you can think of. It is due to the generosity of our sponsors that we are able to get these needed supplies. If you’re interested in sponsoring Columbus SOUP, let us know!
