April News for Spark Northwest


Early Giving Has Launched!

During this year’s GiveBig campaign, please consider supporting Spark Northwest. When you give, good things happen for local communities in our region. 

For example, we use a hands-on, experiential learning approach to set foundational knowledge for Indigenous community members, so they are ready to design and control their own clean energy solutions.

We believe moving towards independence in energy planning is a good thing for local communities! We would be grateful for your support with an early GiveBig donation.

Spark Northwest has joined with other organizations and individuals across Washington state to say we’ll vote NO on I-2117 this November to protect our clean air and water, forests and farmland, jobs, and transportation investments. 

If passed, 2117 would remove funding that supports Tribal Nations and other local communities, including:  

  • Programs to keep Indigenous communities safe from flooding and sea level rise;

  • Programs for clean energy projects, like solar and wind; and,  

  • Transit services and transit projects on Tribal lands.

Learn more and pledge to vote No on 2117  

Congratulations Wellness House Yakima

Spark Northwest recently helped with technical and grant writing assistance to add solar to Wellness House, an organization that offers free support services, education and resources to people suffering from cancer or other life-challenging illnesses. We are happy to report that Wellness House was awarded funding from Pacific Power’s Blue Sky program so the center can achieve their goal of reducing carbon and saving money. 


Congratulations to our Yakima community partner!
