Spark is a non-profit that provides small grants and pro bono services for grassroots women's organizations around the world. But that description doesn't do it justice. Spark punches far above its philanthropic weight:
- With 10,000 members, we are the largestnetwork of millennial philanthropists in the United States. That's with only two paid staff!
- Which means that we rely on our members to be a giving circle of volunteers and a community of learners.
- Almost half of our members are men, and that's because we emphasize that women's rights are human rights.
- In doing all this, we're not just providing a spark for our grantees, we're also cultivating the next generation of leaders.
It's my privilege to serve on Spark's Board of Directors. And for my birthday I'm asking you all to help me raise $1,000 for Spark. Thank you!
