Of our generous soup sponsors, we ask for enough soup for 60+ people (sometimes closer to 150!). We need at least one vegan offering, and gluten-free options are also appreciated. If you are interested in providing a soup or supplementary snacks or beverages, please email us to coordinate for the next possible Sloup!
Sloup loves coming to venues of all kinds, ranging from storefronts to museums and galleries to offices. The only requisite is a minimum capacity of 60 persons (sometimes up to 150!), which is flexible during good-weather months if there is outdoor space for spillover. And while it’s not necessary, we also appreciate if you can provide a small number of tables and chairs, plus a PA system. Please email us to see when we can do a Sloup at your establishment!
Sponsoring Sloup accomplishes at least three amazing things:
- Your donation allows us to fundraise for deserving creative ideas that don’t qualify for other traditional funding mechanisms like foundational grants and bank loans. These small-scale projects are critical to building a culturally rich and diverse community, where arts and social programs can grow to be economically sustainable on a large scale. At time of publication, Sloup has given over $30,000 to creative grassroots ideas, taking 0% overhead costs out of the monthly event proceeds thanks to our generous sponsors.
- Each event provides a huge opportunity for guests to expose themselves to news places, neighborhoods, and businesses. They tend to be creatively-minded urban dwellers who are looking to patronize local businesses (like our sponsors) on a daily and weekly basis.
- You make a public commitment to supporting community initiatives and affiliate your organization and brand with the energy, impact, and creativity of grassroots activism in St. Louis.
Special thanks to Nebula Coworking for being an ongoing sponsor of Sloup!
