Ferndale Soup Microgranting Dinner Sept. 19

Ferndale Soup Microgranting Dinner Sept. 19

Ferndale, MI – On Wednesday, September 19, 2018, Build Institute and the City of Ferndale are hosting another Ferndale SOUP, a micro-granting dinner focused on supporting community projects and businesses in Ferndale.



Ferndale SOUP is a microgranting dinner celebrating and supporting creative projects that benefit the Ferndale community. For a donation $5 at the door, attendees receive soup, salad, bread and a vote and hear from four presentations ranging from art, urban agriculture, social justice, social entrepreneurs, education, technology and more. Four presenters will have four minutes each to share their idea and answer four questions from the audience.

At the event, attendees eat, talk, share resources, and vote on the project they think benefits the city the most. There will also be a performance by a local artist.  At the end of the night, we will count the ballots and the winner will go home with all of the money raised to carry out their project. The event is on Wednesday September 19 , 2018, from 6:00 – 9:00 pm at Rust Belt Market, 22801 Woodward Ave, Ferndale, MI.

Anyone interested in submitting an idea to SOUP can do so online at http://buildinstitute.org/ferndale/

Since 2010, Detroit SOUP has raised over $140,000 to support over 150 community projects. In 2017, Detroit SOUP became a program of Build Institute to strengthen the resources available to entrepreneurs in the Detroit and surrounding area.

We hope to see you at Ferndale SOUP!
