Marc Sparks is a Dallas based businessman, author and philanthropist. Together with Lynne Spiora Marc has undertaken a series of philanthropic projects all over the state of Texas.
Coming from humble origins himself, Marc Sparks has never forgotten his concern for his fellow man. 15 years ago he founded the Samaritan Inn, once a rundown homeless shelter, now a $3 million facility feeding over 200 people a day. In addition to that, he and Lynne have mounted a transitional living center in North Texas, and are currently building a family shelter. The success of these endeavors have inspired them to help other social entrepreneurs with their new program Spark Tank.
Modeled after the hit television program Shark Tank, Marc and Lynne’s new project enables social entrepreneurs to receive the grant funding and management oversight they need to carry out their philanthropic projects.
Marc and Lynne want to find the most talented, creative, hard-working individuals who are passionate about their projects and are dedicated to improving the lives of others. Read more: They Can’t Eat You: My Unorthodox Path To Outrageous Success
