About Spark Grants

Our goal with Spark Grants is to provide resources for big ideas with potential to impact our community. We don’t simply stop with funding. Recipients of Spark Grants are those with a plan for community involvement and advancement with whom we build relationships and work together to make the biggest impact possible on Jewish teens and those in their sphere.

As a Federation Innovation initiative, we have had the opportunity to work with many members of the Jewish community to help develop innovative programming through Spark Grants.
