Spark Grants

Spark Grants provide funding and support for those with ideas to invest in Atlanta’s Jewish teen ecosystem.

We believe in building relationships to strengthen Atlanta’s Jewish community through innovation and ground breaking ideas.

Community Impact

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.

What an amazing retreat! Thank you JumpSpark for supporting me to enrich my heart and soul in Jewish texts. I had already used my professional leadership budget so this was a godsend. The professional track was well organized, relevant and helpful and it was nice to have a cohort. I know it would not have been as successful without JumpSpark’s support.

You guys did a tremendous job with the curriculum, communication, and accommodation for the kids. Thanks!
