Shared Prosperity Kalamazoo

Shared Prosperity Kalamazoo (SPK) is a bold and ambitious plan to transform our community into a place where every adult and every child thrives and prospers. Our vision is of a community where no one is left behind because of poverty or lack of opportunities. This vision isn't limited to only growing financial assets, but all assets. Everyone has assets- qualities that are valuable and useful to our community. All people need opportunities to grow whatever assets they have and gain whatever assets they need to succeed. Shared Prosperity Kalamazoo is a campaign to transform the culture of the city so that it truly becomes the City of Promise for everyone. Its fundamental purpose is to create more broadly shared prosperity and eliminate generational poverty in Kalamazoo.
