Spark members manage our investments, identify grantees, secure service donations and evaluate outcomes. During Investment Committee meetings, members vote on which groups receive support and they work to ensure impact. They focus investments on global partners and in the New York City area. The meetings are open to non-members, but you must be a current member to participate in decision-making and voting.
Spark is a network of young professionals who provide seed grants and pro bono services for emerging grassroots women’s organizations in San Francisco, New York and around the world. The organization is almost entirely volunteer-based, giving young people opportunities for engagement in local and global philanthropy. Spark members identify potential grantees, vote on organizations to support, secure monetary and in-kind donations, and evaluate outcomes. Founded in 2005, Spark is presently the largest network of Millennial philanthropists dedicated to investing in women. Follow us at @sparksf
