Spark grants are micro-grants to individuals designed to bring people-powered ideas and dreams to life in Pierce County, sparking positive social and neighborhood change through the efforts of grass-roots leadership. With a maximum award of $1,500 Spark Grants are intended to create community through projects that bring diverse people together.
Spark grants began as a follow up to GTCF’s Be the Spark event in 2011, which included an inspirational visit to Tacoma by Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and world-renowned activist Archbishop Desmond Tutu. More than 15,000 people attended the Be the Spark event at the Tacoma Dome.
