Jump$tart Grants Program

Program Grants

The purpose of the Jump$tart Washington Grant Program is to fund projects that support Jump$tart’s mission:  Jump$tart Washington promotes the development of personal finance skills of Washington residents, with emphasis on education for K-college youth.

The current focus of grant awards is Financial Literacy that impacts high needs populations and creates a best practice or tool that is replicable or scalable.  This focus may change from time to time and will be reviewed by the Jump$tart Board each year.  The Board has the discretion to allow funding of grant requests that do not fit into the current focus, as long as they support the mission of Jump$tart.

National Educator Conference
Teacher Grants

Jump$tart Washington is sponsoring two Washington state teachers to attend the Jump$tart National Educator Conference (JSNEC) in Washington, DC on Nov. 6-8, 2021. The 12th annual JSNEC will be at the historic Omni Shoreham Hotel where participants “return, reset, and recommit” to financial education in the classroom. JSNEC is open to U.S. Pre-K through 12th grade classroom educators who teach personal finance or incorporate it into any subject.

In additional to scholarships, hotel accommodations and meals for 2 teachers to attend the JSNEC, Jump$tart Washington will provide travel reimbursement. All teachers are encouraged to apply for the JumpStart Washington Scholarship and the National Scholarship. Educators accepted to attend the National Conference are provided no-cost registration, hotel accommodations and meals as part of their invitation to attend the conference. Jump$tart Washington grants are intended for first-time attendees.  

Jump$tart Washington travel reimbursement grants are available
to first-time attendees only.

*Note that grant recipients are reimbursed for air transportation to and from the conference and airport transfers to and from the conference hotel.  Incidental and optional costs are the responsibility of the grant recipient.
