Grants and Donations
Spark! is always looking for new sources of funding, and we currently have several active bids for grants with Trusts and Foundations focused on young people.
We’re delighted to announce that in May 2017, we have secured funding from Inspire Hounslow to run Kickstart Express with 7 Hounslow schools. Thanks to their generous support, we will be able to help 200 young people prepare for the world of work. For more information about Inspire, go to: http://inspirehounslow.co.uk/
In 2016, we received valuable support from the Asfari Foundation (for our KICKSTART programme), The London Borough of Hounslow (Community Partnerships Team), and the Heathrow Community Fund.
Over the years, we have also received generous support from the following organisations:
The 29th May 1961 Charity, The Asfari Foundation, Heathrow Community Fund, The Mercers’ Company, The Rotary Club of Hounslow, S.F.I.A. Educational Trust Limited, St James’s Place Foundation and Thames Valley Housing Association.
There is no such thing as free volunteering, and every event we run costs time and money. With your assistance and investment, we can continue our work in building a positive, bright future for young people.
Every year we:
- Engage with thousands of young people through in-school events.
- Work with business volunteers (from small to multinational employers) to help at those events, and to host activities in their workplace.
- Find work placements for 1500 young people.
Whether you are a business, trust or individual looking to help young people kickstart their careers, we would love to talk to you.
