About

Make a direct impact on area nonprofits by giving to the Ethics Club's SparkTank Initiative.

Each year, the Ethics Club proudly sponsors SparkTank, a Shark Tank-style competition that champions Albany County nonprofit organizations dedicated to providing essential services like food, shelter, safety, and clothing to community members in need.

Since 2018, the Ethics Club has invested a remarkable $400,000 in local nonprofits, with an impressive $160,000 awarded to last year's finalists: Unaccompanied Students Initiative ($50,000), Climb Wyoming ($47,000), Family Promise ($38,000), and Feeding Laramie Valley ($25,000).

This fall, we're gearing up to select a new group of nonprofits for SparkTank 2024, scheduled for Thursday, April 25 at the Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center. Finalists will be chosen based on specific criteria, including their community impact, commitment to the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Principles, and their proposed use of funding

We invite you to consider making a charitable gift to support the next generation of ethical business and community leaders, while also strengthening Albany County's extraordinary nonprofit community.

Your generosity will help us continue to make a lasting impact and create positive change in our community. Thank you!
