Ryan Coon, program officer at the Sprout Fund, says 100 Days is a non-partisan initiative aimed at “developing a mechanism to help people support what is most important to them in the first 100 days.” Coon says he envisions proposals to be similar to typical Sprout grant recipients—small-scale, grassroots, community-based—but with an emphasis on civic engagement.
. . . The funding for the initiative comes from the Sprout Fund’s own financial reserves and it is the first time the organization has ever committed their own funds in such a manner. (Typically Sprout funding comes from specific grants or fundraising campaigns.)
