Support the Coalition

Tennessee Jump$tart is an all-volunteer, charitable 501(c)3, not-for-profit organiza­tion and as such, in-kind donations such as the printing of promotional materials or hosting of meetings and events are greatly appreciated. The Coalition also welcomes monetary contributions.

Make a difference locally

Organizations and individuals can make a great impact at the local level. Here are just a few ways you can make a difference:

Financial Institutions:

Volunteer to work with a local school or district to provide classroom presentations or teacher support.

Educators:

Incorporate personal finance within your curriculum. Personal finance has been taught successfully to students of all ages and within many core and elective subjects. For more resources, go to the Clearinghouse section of www.jumpstart.org and search according to your grade and subject.

Policy Makers:

Consider ways to incorporate personal finance education into your school’s curriculum and teacher professional development programs.

Parents:

Begin teaching your child about personal finance at a young age and continue to reinforce these concepts. Encourage your local schools and teachers to incorporate money and personal finance concepts into their curriculums.
