Welcome to Prepare + Prosper’s online magazine, Spark. One of the definitions of spark is “to set off in a burst of activity.” That is exactly our intention with this weekly publication. In this space we will share ideas, opinions, and information that we hope will spark thinking, conversation, action, and collaboration, all with the goal of building brighter financial futures for hardworking people and families.

A number of voices and perspectives will be represented in Spark and cover all areas of our work: free tax preparation, financial services and coaching, advocacy, financial inclusion, nonprofit matters, stories from the hundreds of people making this work happen, and more.

I hope you find the content interesting and inspiring, and I hope that it sparks something for you.
