Support JUMP Math

JUMP Math is a unique charity dedicated to improving math education that relies heavily on donations to support the development and continuous enhancement of its curriculum materials. 

 

     Donate on-line, safely and securely.

 

JUMP Math is a federally registered charitable organization based in Canada; Canadian Registration Number is 864326814 RR0001.  Every dollar we raise goes towards nurturing mathematical ability and academic confidence in young people.

  • Numeracy is widely understood as a foundation of 21st century economic competitiveness. Despite this, many national, provincial and municipal governments experience faltering performance in mathematics. These performance gaps are evident in studies of the Canadian educational landscape.
  • Numeracy skills in middle school grades have been shown to be strong predictors of eventual graduation from high school, itself a pre-requisite to employability. A study by Johns Hopkins University concluded that sixth graders who fail math have less than a 1 in 5 chance of making it to the 12th grade on time.
  • Over 170,000 students are using JUMP Math this year.
  • This year, donations and self-generated revenue also allowed JUMP to provide subsidized materials and training for almost 5,000 students and their teachers, who would not otherwise have been able to access the JUMP Math program.
  • Canada ranks among the top 15 countries in student math achievement and a randomized-controlled study found that students taught using JUMP Math progressed twice as fast as students taught using one of Canada’s two most widely used math programs.
  • JUMP Math has been described as “A Better Way to Teach Math” in the New York Times.

JUMP Math will provide tax receipts for donations of cash and securities according to Canada Customs and Revenue Agency (CCRA) guidelines. We will acknowledge your donation within one week of receiving it. Charitable tax receipts are issued immediately for donations made online.
 

Donating Shares and other Securities

JUMP Math is grateful for donations of publicly traded shares and other securities. Donating securities can be a tax efficient way to make a donation to charities that you support. By donating securities you may, under some circumstances, eliminate the capital gains tax on securities that have risen in value from their purchase price. Under current Canadian tax rules, your donated securities are exempt from capital gains tax when transferred in-kind to a charity. The capital gains tax exemption does not apply if you sell the securities first and then donate the cash proceeds.

If you are interested in making a donation of shares, please contact Margot Porter, Director of Development, JUMP Math at 416-596-7716 x227 or margot.porter@jumpmath.org. The procedure is straightforward and may enable you to make a larger donation (and an even bigger difference!) at a lower cost. Following your donation, we will issue a charitable tax receipt based on the closing value of the shares on the date they are received into our brokerage account. It is important to seek the advice of your financial advisor when making a donation of securities.
