Sparks contributes to other local and national charities, as well, including the Creative Writing Program (MFA) at the University of Notre Dame by funding scholarships, internships and annual fellowships. In 2008, Entertainment Weekly reported that Sparks and his then-wife had donated "close to $10 million" to start a Christian, international, college-prep private school , The Epiphany School of Global Studies, which emphasizes travel and lifelong learning.   In his spare time, Sparks volunteers at his local retirement home. He was later sued by the headmaster of this school who accused Sparks of homophobia, racism and anti-semitism.
