Thank you for your interest in contributing to SPARK

Ann Arbor SPARK works with innovative businesses that move our economy forward – driving industries – segments of the economy that touch every aspect of our overall economic success. When these companies, from startups to global powerhouses succeed, they make investments, create jobs and economic prosperity for our region. By working together to build and support an innovative business culture and entrepreneurial ecosystem, we can create a more prosperous future for our local community and entire region. 

Since 2006, SPARK has accelerated business growth in the Ann Arbor area, resulting in $1.8 billion in new investment and over 14,000 jobs.  With your support, we can further advance the region's economy - support Ann Arbor SPARK and invest in the future of our great region!
