Organizer The Sprout Fund

Organizer of Pittsburgh Economic Opportunity Forum

Communities are better places to live, learn, and thrive because of the people and ideas supported by The Sprout Fund. We help projects and programs in the early stages of development—when just a small amount of investment has the potential to yield big results in the community. Since 2001, we’ve worked with regional and national philanthropic partners to build strong networks and make nearly $7 million of community-decided investments in more than 1,000 early-stage projects, organizations, innovators, and activities.
