For seven years, we have tested the premise that investing social capital—crowd-sourced grants, pro bono professional services, in-kind gifts, connections and attention—in grassroots women’s organizations can have a catalytic impact in women’s lives. As a result of Spark’s “seed” investments in grassroots women’s organizations, our grantees have opened schools, shelters, legal aid clinics and water wells. They have improved lives. They have received endorsements in the form of grants and awards from established institutions. They have changed the landscape of who and how communities become empowered. 70% of Spark’s funding comes from our members. By supporting Spark, you are making an investment in your local and global community to improve the lives of women around the world.
Members enjoy voting privileges, leadership opportunities, priority access and discounts at our events. You don’t have to be a woman or young professional to join. 50% of our members are men. Our youngest member is 15. Our oldest member is 73.
Partner with Spark through co-branded marketing, event sponsorship and organized volunteer activities for corporate employees. Your sponsorship support will help propel Spark’s mission while connecting you to key audiences and influential tastemakers.

Donor Directed Giving
Love our grantees? We do, too. And we want to help them anyway we can. You can donate to one of our current grantees and we will grant 100% of your donation to that group. You do the giving. We will do the processing.
Goods and Services
We are looking for individuals and companies who want to share their talents and resources. Examples of service donations include everything from web development to deejaying. We also depend on in-kind donations.
