Imagine starting a race knowing everyone will get a head start, except for you. Not exactly fair, is it? In fact, less than half (48%) of children born into low-income families are ready for kindergarten at age five, compared to 75% of children from families with moderate or high incomes.
Jumpstart is working to close the kindergarten readiness gap by building early literacy and language skills with children from under-resourced communities. Their vision is that one day every child will have the chance to succeed, regardless of their economic background.
Please consider donating to this important cause. Jumpstart will allocate 100% of your donation to providing high-quality early education programs to the children who need it most. Every dollar raised will help children gain the critical language, literacy, and social-emotional skills they need to be successful in school and beyond.
