Spark Club is an emerging network with the goal of sparking and nurturing good idease for a deeper investment in our community. Spark Club is not your ordinary foundation, institute or not-for-profit. It is a completely voluntary network of brilliant people interested in affecting change where they live. We recognize that social impact is achieved by working well with others and for a good cause. Our gatherings, both virtual and actual are designed to identify and create new ways of looking at community challenges and social issues. We hope to inspire a robust network representing all sectors and issues areas to connect and leverage social entrepreneurship throughout the North Texas community.
Working in inclusive and interactive ways, we organize virtually and through a variety of actual gatherings that will take a variety of formats to meet, tease out, define, discover and develop innovative solutions to issues in our communities.
