Spark Foundation Partners



Book Fairs

Through our partnership with Scholastic Book Fairs, Spark is able to provide students a truly immersive experience. The book fairs allow students to step out of the classroom and into a book store built for them! Thanks to the Scholastic Book Fairs systems, we can accurately measure the impact of our self-selected book distribution by tracking the number of books distributed back into home libraries, minutes read, and students impacted. Scholastic Book Fairs also provides a match back to the school in the form of Scholastic Dollars, which can then be used to support specific building needs.
