Sparkle’s energies are geared toward:

  • Single Mothers caring for children
  • Women who have become derailed due to the uncertainties of life and just need a little nudge to get back on track

Each year the Sparkle Foundation seeks nominations of women and their families that could use a little extra sparkle this holiday season. We look for single mothers and other women who, despite their circumstances, keep hustling, keep smiling, and many times think only of everyone else.

ENRICHMENT SCHOLARSHIPS Keeping children engaged in sports and the extracurricular programs is so important. Our Sparkle enrichment scholarship program is designed to do just that. We provide one-time scholarships for the children of single mothers.   We provide funding for programs such as sports, art, theater, tutoring, camps, music, dance, and technology.  Also, we pay the providers directly to make sure the funds are allocated correctly. 

We believe in women, and we believe that single mothers are the hardest working group of women out there especially when it comes to being a business owner. Now, we are ready to put money behind them.  In 2021 we launched SparkleBiz, micro-lending to single mothers that want to start or grow their businesses.


The Sparkle Foundation’s mission is to make sure women and children have a sparkle in their eyes. We help women because women rarely ask for help. We help children because they are many of times victims of circumstances.

Through events, such as our Holiday Gift Drive and one-off, case-by-case gifts to women and children in need, the Sparkle Foundation focuses on providing not just life’s necessities but the delights, as well.

Through aid for enrichment programs and access to our network of resources, Sparkle adds to the lives of those that receive Sparkle assistance in many ways.

Through SparkleBiz we offer microloans to single mothers that want to start or grow their businesses.

Sparkle’s energies are geared toward:

-Single Mothers caring for children

-Women who have become derailed due to the uncertainties of life and just need a little nudge to get back on track

-One time assistance
