Spark Newton!

Celebrating the power of philanthropy throughout Newton County.

Local Flavor

Spark Newton!—formerly the Newton Fund—was established in 2000 to bring together donors, nonprofits and community members to make philanthropy happen in Newton County. Since 2000, Spark Newton! has granted more than $286,000 to area nonprofits to respond to the changing needs of the community. Through it all, we have partnered with a volunteer advisory committee that has infused the work of Spark Newton with local knowledge about Newton County issues, opportunities and priorities.

Spark Newton is not accepting applications at this time.

The Community Foundation offers a variety of other competitive grant programs. Nonprofits located in Newton are encouraged to review the eligibility criteria for the Foundation’s other programs and apply as appropriate. Information on those programs is located on our Available Grants page.
