2017-18 Spark Prize Application Opens April 10, 2017

Brooklyn Community Foundation's Spark Prize begins accepting applications on April 10, 2017. The Spark Prize provides annual recognition and meaningful support to organizations with a strong track record of addressing critical challenges and opportunities in Brooklyn. Five award recipients receive a $100,000 prize in general operating support grants distributed over a two or three year period. Also, 20 finalist nonprofits each receive up to $5,000 in matching funds on GivingTuesday— the annual national day of giving observed the Tuesday after Thanksgiving— to encourage local donors to support their work. Winners and finalists will be selected through a competitive application process by the Spark Prize Committee, a diverse group of distinguished civic, business, and neighborhood leaders hailing from Brooklyn. RSVP to attend an Application Clinic on April 10 or 20. Application deadline is May 12, 2017.
