NH Jump$tart

Committed to Improving the Financial Literacy of NH’s Youth

2020 Goals:

Our specific goals as we launch into our 20-year anniversary will be to continue our popular programs and activities: FinLit300 — a high school tournament focusing on financial literacy; the I Can Save! Tour of second grade classroom presentations emphasizing the difference between needs vs. wants; our annual teacher training workshop known as Classroom Connections; and our annual charity golf tournament. Additionally, we will continue to promote our recent statewide study of New Hampshire schools, identifying where a personal finance course is required for graduation.

Fundraising Events:

Kids & Money — at the beginning of each year, we conduct our “Kids & Money” campaign where organizations and individuals can make a tax-deductible donation with a credit or debit card online through our website. Annual Golf Tournament — held each August, this annual fundraiser provides necessary support for the upcoming academic year.
