The first step towards SPARK entrepreneurial services is filling out a client intake application.
Ann Arbor SPARK is a 501(c)(6), which qualifies it as a business league devoted to improving common-interest business conditions and does not benefit a single individual or shareholder. The organization also manages the Ann Arbor SPARK Foundation which is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. It is a very common arrangement for organizations to have both designations. For example, the Ann Arbor / Ypsilanti Regional Chamber has both as well. Because the organization maintains the two designations, we file two tax returns.
