WHAT WE DO
The Kentucky Jump$tart Coalition is a nonprofit organization with more than 50 partners – individuals representing business, education, government and nonprofit associations – who have joined together to improve the personal financial literacy of Kentuckians of all ages. Kentucky Jump$tart believes that all Kentuckians need to have the financial literacy necessary to make informed financial decisions and seeks to improve money management skills throughout the life cycle.
The Kentucky Jump$tart Coalition is a proud affiliate of the National Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy®.

2014 winners of the Kentucky Jump$tart Poster Contest and Kentucky Extension Piggy Bank Contest for Kentucky Saves Week show their work at the state capitol.
WHAT WE NEED
There are many ways organizations and individuals can become involved with Kentucky Jump$tart.
Join - If you are actively engaged in promoting personal financial literacy, we want you to become a member! Dues are only $50 for an organization or $25 for an individual. Here are just a few of the many benefits of joining:
Support - Monetary or in-kind donations are greatly appreciated by Kentucky Jump$tart, which is a charitable, nonprofit organization.
Make a Difference Locally - There are many ways to make a significant local impact. Parents can begin teaching their children about personal finance at a young age. Educators can incorporate personal finance in their curriculum. Policy makers can consider ways to improve personal finance education in school curriculums and professional development programs for teachers. And financial institutions can volunteer to work with a local school or district to provide classroom presentations or teacher support.
Kentucky Jump$tart partners just finished exhibiting and presenting at teacher’s conferences across the state – the LifeFundamental$ Financial Literacy Summit at three locations in June and the Career and Technical Education Summer Program in July. During these four events, teachers were invited to register to win a paid registration to the national Jump$tart educator conference. (Winner to be announced soon!) In addition to this fabulous grand prize opportunity, teachers were welcomed to take free curriculum materials and resources and found out about speakers who can visit classrooms at no charge. Kentucky Jump$tart truly has a wealth of financial literacy resources available to educators at all grade levels!
