Spark seeks to advance gender equality by engaging the next generation in accessible forms of philanthropy.
- We believe that investing in innovative, grassroots, women-led organizations can transform communities.
- We believe that investing a combination of money, time and connections can have catalytic results.
- We believe that the aggregation of small gifts can have an impact on intractable problems.
- We believe those addressing women’s equity and human rights should be diverse.
