The Sprout Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to funding various programs designed to increase civic engagement in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.[1][2]

Sprout-funded murals were named the "Best Public Art" by the Pittsburgh City Paper in 2006.[3]

The Sprout Fund hosts an annual fundraiser called "Hothouse," a "roving party".[4][5] Most of that money funds the "Sprout Seed Awards", a series to small to moderate grants.[6][7][8][9]
