About:
Our Mission:

  • Spark seeks to build a community of young, global citizens who are invested in changing patterns of inequality that impact women throughout the world.


Our Strategy:

  • Community Building: Through its unique participatory membership, Spark cultivates a community of young professionals who are actively engaged in global women’s issues.
  • Education: Spark educates its community on issues that impact women and girls through educational forums, volunteer opportunities, and international delegation trips.
  • Advocacy: Spark engages our community to support policy initiatives which benefit women and girls both locally and globally.
  • Grant-Making: Spark harnesses the philanthropic spirit of its community to raise money for and give capacity-building grants to grassroots women’s organizations that create positive social change in their communities.

Our Values:

  • We believe a commitment to active participation is paramount in cultivating a global citizenry.
  • We believe in changing institutions and eliminating prejudices which limit women’s ability to realize their full potential.
  • We believe that education of young, global citizens is crucial to fostering the next generation of philanthropists committed to global women’s issues.
  • We believe that political advocacy is a necessary agent of change for improving the status of women worldwide.
  • We believe in fostering global partnerships because while the degradation of women is universal it is best addressed by women in their communities.
