Fundraising is about more than donations. It’s about getting people to invest in the future. Let us help you find your funding spark to ignite change in your community.


About Spark Point

At Spark Point, we believe in the fight for equity. We work with clients in healthcare, human services, workforce development, the arts, and other critical sectors that help our neighbors and communities thrive.

With our combination of experience, know-how, and passion for progress, we are here to take the fear out of fundraising, simplify the process, and get results for your team so that you can focus on the work that matters: igniting social change and building a more equitable world.


Nonprofit Sector – We understand and value the nonprofit sector as a field and for its ability to change the world in meaningful and important ways.

Ingenuity – The same old, same old doesn’t fly. We know what works, but we also know when what works could be even better. We don’t rest on our laurels, we plant new seeds.

Integrity – We operate with an unabashed commitment to honesty and morality.

Equity – We are ambassadors for equity and have a deep commitment to creating a level playing field, both within and beyond our company.

Kindness – We aim to always treat each other and our clients with kindness and care, understanding their humanity and varied life experiences.

A Commitment to Ending Racism – Our commitment to equity is not superficial. Spark Point, like many organizations, is on a journey to eliminate racism and white supremacy from its operations. If this resonates with you then you are well-aligned with our company.
