Committee Leadership

Interested in participating in Spark at a more in-depth level? Would you like to get to know the Spark leadership and learn how a non-profit is run? Join a Committee! Spark has three core committees:

  • Investment Committee – make decisions about who and how we support women’s organizations
  • Vetting Committee – select grant applications to move forward in the grantmaking process
  • Impact Committee – develop and track our impact metrics
  • Events Committee – strategize partnership, fundraising and community building opportunities

Contact us if you would like to join a committee. Additionally, please view our events calendar for committee dates.


In-Kind Professional Services

The organizations that we support—grassroots, start-up enterprises—are looking for financial resources but also tools that will help them scale their goals. We are looking for individuals and companies who want to share their talents and resources. Examples of service donations include everything from legal advice to logo design. We can facilitate service exchanges that are either one-off or ongoing.

If you would like to donate professional services, please contact us.


Event Volunteers

Spark hosts monthly networking events in New York and San Francisco. We need help managing those events. If you volunteer for a Spark event 3 times in a year, we will give you a complimentary membership. Volunteering is a great way to meet members, get to know our organization and receive complimentary access to events.

If you would like to volunteer for an event, please contact us for the event details.
