Spark Society

The Spark Society is a group of supporters who annually contribute $1,000 or more to Street Business School (SBS). In honor of the “spark” that entrepreneurs feel when they realize their inner potential at SBS training, the Spark Society champions women working to lift themselves and their families out of poverty forever.

Through their gifts, members of the Spark Society create astounding impact. A gift of $1,000 sends three women to SBS, empowering them to start their own small businesses. SBS graduates use their newly acquired income to send their children to school, and our alumni have five dependents on average. Therefore, investing $1,000 in three women results in an education for 15 children. We think this is amazing and we are deeply grateful to our Spark Society members for creating this impact.

This inspiring community of philanthropists creates the foundation for lifting 1 million women out of poverty worldwide. The Spark Society is one way for us to say “thank you” to our generous and steadfast donors. When you become a part of the Spark Society, we show our appreciation and recognize you for your contributions and commitment to SBS through a variety of Spark Society experiences.
