Salida Soup is a monthly community-based dinner where participants, through this microgranting event, assist a variety of projects in the Upper Arkansas River Valley.
Join us each month for the evolution of fundraising. Bring a pre-packaged food item (a main dish of soup will be provided) and a $5 donation to be eligible to vote on the evening’s presentations.
As a diner, you will hear five-minute pitches from community members who need funding for projects that are beneficial to the community. Enjoy food, drink, art, and music, then choose the winning proposal to receive the evening’s donations.
Parters for Community Action
Our mission is to create environments where the community can express their shared voice. Our goal is to create events, projects, and programs that are accessible and inclusive, in an effort to inspire social change.
When creating an event, our focus isn’t solely on the economic impact but more importantly on how it can inspire communication and catalyze social change.
The PfCA Program’s goal is to assist in as many local events that are focused on bridging divides, that celebrate diversity, youth, and/or share culture. We may do this by creating the event, being a sponsor, or contributing in some other meaningful way.
Each of the PfCA’s programs is built around serving a specific need. For example – Salida Soup: it was implemented to fill the need for funding small community-driven projects, typically ineligible to receive funding from most granting sources or lending institutions.
The community is always asked to share their ideas for projects and programs or to identify the gaps that are present and need to be bridged.
