Sprout is a Social Purpose Corporation, founded in the State of Washington. We are a financial literacy firm, providing financial education to individuals, families and corporations.


The Social Purpose Corporation Legislation allows corporations to pursue financial profit along with a stated general and specific social and/or environmental benefit of its own designation. The model provides businesses the legal means to maximize shareholder profit through more than return on equity, but through  economic, social and environmental impact.


Our current social goals are to provide cost effective financial workshops to the general population and help empower woman that are victims of domestic violence as well as the homeless.
