Greater Washington Jumpstart Coalition

Greater Washington Jump$tart is a coalition comprised of more than 50 individuals and organizations representing business, non-profit, education, and government entities. 

We support Financial Education for Youth through Connecting Partners and Raising Awareness across the DC Metropolitan area.

Our theme for 2015 - 2016 is Revitalize, Re-Engage and Re-Brand! We recently elected new Board members and have adopted a new strategy to expand our impact on Financial Literacy in the DC Metropolitan area.
