Teach someone about investing

Many people don’t have a savings or investment account. Traditional financial firms can make investing complicated. SparkGift makes investing simple so that young investors can learn the value of investing early and experienced investors can receive gifts that grow their portfolio. A gift can empower someone's financial future.

Send a stock gift certificate in under a minute

There’s no need to fill out long forms, sign papers, or mail checks. You choose a stock or fund and pay. We create a gift certificate with your choice of stock and fund and deliver it to the recipient. It only takes a minute to give an investment that can last a lifetime.

Start gifting stock for as low as $20

With SparkGift you can give fractional shares of stocks and index funds. Using SparkGift, you can give someone a piece of Apple stock, Google stock or a Vanguard index fund, with just $20. SparkGift charges a fee of $2.95 + 3%. Gift recipients pay nothing to redeem their gift and hold their investments.
