Grant Opportunity JumpStart Coalition

Dear Financial Education Friend –

As a Jump$tart Washington Coalition partner, we are pleased to announce the Jump$tart Washington Coalition is committed to covering the expenses (reimbursing transport to/from airport, and airfare, and paying the $1,250 conference fee in advance – which includes meals and hotel) for two qualified and motivated educators to attend the 2020 Jump$tart National Educators Conference Nov. 7-9 in Atlanta, Georgia.

This event is the only national educator conference devoted entirely to personal finance education in the classroom. For more information on the conference, visit

Please share this information with all Washington State educators – it’s a great opportunity!

To apply for full sponsorship from the Jump$tart Washington Coalition, please fill out the form at: Applications are due Friday, July. 31, 2020. If you would like to include a resume, please email it to

Jump$tart Washington will provide Jump$tart National with names of four Washington educators:

  • Names of the two educators Jump$tart Washington is sponsoring will be shared with Jump$tart National so they know Jump$tart Washington is covering all of your expenses.
  • We will share two additional names (only if you have indicated you wish to be considered for this option) with National for conference-only sponsorship – these educators will need to provide for their own travel expenses.

We encourage you to fill out the application for sponsorship by National Jump$tart as well. If you are not selected by Jump$tart Washington for full sponsorship or as one of the two for National conference sponsorship, you may still be selected by Jump$tart National for conference sponsorship if there are additional sponsors and available positions.

If selected from the national application, conference expenses including meals and hotel will be covered, though you will be required to cover your own travel expenses. You may apply for National Jump$tart Coalition sponsorship at National applications are due Aug. 21, 2020.

Jump$tart Washington will notify you in early August if you are selected for full sponsorship. Jump$tart National Coalition will notify conference sponsorship awards separately.

We look forward to reviewing your applications. Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly if you have any questions.
