SPARK’s mission is to help ensure that the children of Larkspur and Corte Madera receive an exceptional education by supporting an impressive variety and depth of programs. The Foundation does this by raising critical financial resources to fund both educators and other aspects of the curricula. SPARK strives to unite and include all parents and the community in pursuit of the worthy goal of the best possible education for all of our kids.


The Foundation is guided by the following in all that it does — from fundraising activities, community-building events, and other community touch points:

  • All for one and one for all — One Team!
  • Represent and communicate our core brand attributes: Caring, Responsible, and Inclusive
  • Treat everyone in a respectful and positive manner
  • Be solutions oriented
  • Welcome innovation and creativity
  • Celebrate and acknowledge successes
