100 Days of US is an initiative to empower people to act locally during the first 100 days of the new presidential administration to advance positive, solution-oriented responses to issues of national importance.
Launched by The Sprout Fund, a nonprofit organization based in Pittsburgh, more than $120,000 will be support 25 community-led projects in the Pittsburgh region that empower people to act locally in ways that demonstrate their values and vision for America.
Sprout received more than 150 project idea applications and raised more than $23,000 in additional public support from 250 donors, including a $10,000 contribution to the campaign from the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh.
After public voting that generated 41,000 ‘likes’ and a thorough review by 60 community advisors, Sprout selected 25 projects and 5 event sponsorships to receive 100 Days support.
The Sprout Fund will work with these project leaders to assure the successful implementation of their ideas during the first 100 days of the new administration.
