Business Supporters

Working with us in partnership to raise funds will help ignite the potential of all children.

Every year we have to raise around £15,000 which pays for our free events and helps keep our programme affordable for all.

There are plenty of opportunities to help support our work:

Gifts in Kind

Every year we are extremely fortunate to have fantastic support from companies who have provided us with pro bono support or gifts in kind.

Charity of the Year Partnership

Working with a small local charity throughout the year will mean that all your fundraising efforts are even more impactful on our work.

Sponsorship of Events

The Spark Arts for Children offers a number of sponsorship opportunities that enable companies to build an association with a successful and growing arts charity working across Leicester and Leicestershire.

Our annual festival is now the largest of its kind in England and provides a great opportunity for sponsorship and partnership branding. By sponsoring an event/s as part of the festival you will not only increase your profile in the city and county but also directly support our work.

There are also opportunities for your employees to get involved as volunteers.

Donate to the Spark

A business donation can support the participation of a local school or schools in our programme or enable a family in different circumstances to attend the festival.

Adopt a School

A donation of £600 would make it possible for on of our Spark festival shows to visit your local school or for a school to take a trip to the theatre. This would make a real difference to children with little or no experience of the arts.


We produce 16,000 copies of our festival brochure distributed widely across the county. Advertising your company is a great way of reaching new audiences. More about advertising in 2018.


Fundraising is essential for The Spark to be able to continue to change the lives of young people. Each year we hold a challenge event which might be a personal challenge or simply fun to do whilst also supporting our vital work. Last year we held a zip wire event in June in Victoria Park.

If you have your own idea and would like to fundraise for us please get in touch.
