Ways to Donate

Your support helps us connect people with disabilities in East Tennessee to the adaptive technology tools and services they need to live with maximum independence and dignity.


We appreciate any donation that you can make to our center.

Monetary Donations

Donations of money are used to provide services to people who have no funding, such as the many people in East Tennessee who have Lou Gehrig’s Disease, are elderly, minority, live in inner-city or rural areas, have young children, or who live in nursing homes. Funds are also used to repair and adapt devices, including toys, computers, and communication devices. Each year, Spark staff work with several hundred people who have no funds to pay for services.

Spark is a designated 501(c)(3) organization by the IRS, and all donations of money, time, or equipment are tax deductible. We can provide written receipt of donated items for your tax deduction.
