The Colorado Jump$tart Coalition is a nonprofit organization with more than 40 organizations and individuals representing business, government, and education throughout the state of Colorado. We have joined together to improve the personal financial literacy of Colorado youth by:
Raising awareness of personal financial literacy.
Enhancing professional development of Colorado educators on financial literacy issues.
Coordinating and promoting communication and cooperation among coalition members.
Supporting personal financial education legislation.
The Jump$tart Coalition is a proud affiliate of the National Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy. The National Jump$tart Coalition, based in Washington, D.C., was first convened in 1995 and consists of more than 150 organizations committed to improving the financial literacy of America's youth. For more information, visit their website at www.jumpstart.org.
In addition to the national coalition, Jump$tart consists of a network of 49 affiliated state coalitions and their local partners. Each state coalition is an independently governed and operated non-profit organization with its own leadership and bylaws, united with the national Jump$tart Coalition through an affiliation agreement and a desire to advance Jump$tart’s mission of financial smarts for students, locally.
