♥ Support Sunset Spark ♥
Sunset Spark needs your help. Like many, 2020 has been a financially difficult year for Sunset Spark. Without donors like you, we will not make it to 2021. As a 501(c)(3) org, your tax-deductible donation will help us teach creative technology and weird science to families in-person and online and provide much needed tech support and assistance for immigrant families.
You can donate to us through the PayPal Giving Fund or using the secure form below. We also accept checks via the mail by sending them to Sunset Spark, P.O. Box 320145, Brooklyn, NY 11232. Reach out if you'd like to give another way.
With the impact of COVID, there is no more urgent time than now to have access to equitable education. Our programs quickly moved online and hybrid in March. As we delivered project materials door to door, we witnessed the urgent need of tech support for families—fixing devices and internet connection so that they can get online to make human connections. The indispensableness of our work is balanced with joyous smiles and mucho gracias's as kids join their online classes for the first time in weeks. School budgets are frozen and slashed with programs for students and training for teachers being pulled. Typically our program revenue covers operation costs, but partners don't have the funds this year.
Every year we teach over 2,500 students robotics, computer science, game design, and other creative technology and science subjects. Over 95% of our students are first and second generation immigrant families. We run free monthly teacher workshops and family events to help the whole community have fun with science and technology. Your donation helps us keep our doors open.
