Event Details

LTL invitation


Lift the Ladle is a grassroots fundraiser produced by NYU graduate students at George

H. Heyman Center of Philanthropy and Fundraising to benefit St. Joseph’s Soup Kitchen in

Greenwich Village. Going beyond a meaningful opportunity for the NYU community to give back

and address the needs of a local charity, Lift the Ladle offers students valuable hands-on

experience to apply fundraising theory into practice.

Under the leadership of Director Mrs. Naomi Levine and Professor Timothy Higdon,

graduate students at Heyman Center create and execute a fundraising plan to address the

needs of St. Joseph’s Soup Kitchen, an entirely volunteer-run organization serving over 500

meals each Saturday to NYC’s homeless, elderly and low-income residents. For many, this will

be their main meal of the day.

This class project began in 2008 with a handful of graduate students working together as a team

to raise $5,000 for the soup kitchen’s capital needs. Each year, the grassroots project would

surpass the prior year’s fundraising goal and increase awareness for the cause. This year with

our class’ dedication, and the support of the NYU community, including graduate students from

Steinhardt, SCPS General Student Council and the Fundraising Student Association, we aim to

raise $14,000 to benefit St. Joseph’s Soup Kitchen.

With recent cuts in the food stamp program, more New Yorkers will come to rely on soup

kitchens and food pantries to feed their families. With this pressing issue, we hope that you will

join us at Lift the Ladle 2013 in an effort to support the vital work of this soup kitchen.

Together, we can contribute to the vitality of St. Joseph’s Soup Kitchen, as they work tirelessly

each week to cook healthy, balanced meals that feed New York City’s rising population of

homeless and working poor.

100% of the proceeds raised go directly to support the operating and capital needs of the soup kitchen.
