The Oregon Jump$tart Coalition is a statewide, all volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to improving the financial literacy of ALL Oregonians. Oregon Jump$tart is an affiliate of the national Jump$tart Coalition which is focused on youth, but Oregon has expanded this focus to all Oregonians. We are a coalition, comprised of individuals, non-profit organizations, governmental agencies and the corporate sector. The Coalition believes that financial literacy is a necessary life skill for all in order to be successful in life.
