Students from low-income neighborhoods start kindergarten one year behind their peers from more affluent communities. Our goal is to ensure that every student enters kindergarten prepared to succeed.
Help the San Francisco Jumpstart Young Professionals Board achieve this goal and further its mission to provide the tools for success to preschool children from under-resourced communities.
On March 14th, Jumpstart will celebrate the power of the written word at our Scribbles to Novels gala in San Francisco. This annual event underscores the importance of early literacy development in young children and reinforces our critical vision — to work toward the day every child enters kindergarten prepared to succeed.
Last year, 250 advocates showed their support for Jumpstart, raising over $400,000 for Jumpstart programs in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Your generous contribution will help us further our mission and provide underprivileged children the tools they need to thrive.
