NH Jump$tart

Committed to Improving the Financial Literacy of NH’s Youth

28 126258

2023 Goals:

With the new state educational requirement of personal finance as a standalone course beginning in 2023, we will begin to adjust our goals to identifying and measuring effective financial education in our schools. We will also continue to focus on 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 are refocusing our outreach and advocacy efforts with the increase use of social media and other promotional opportunities.

Fundraising Events:

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, is an annual fundraiser that provides necessary support for the upcoming academic year.

program and conducts the annual statewide teacher training conference; Early Awareness Committee identifies methods and events for young children to introduce them to the importance of learning a savings habit at an early age; Policy and Advocacy Committee conducts outreach to the educational, legislative and civic communities by informing them of the coalition’s activities and programs; and Golf Tournament Committee is responsible for the coordination of this annual fundraising event.
