Jumpstart is a philanthropic research & design lab based in Los Angeles.
Jumpstart’s unique combination of original research, crafted convenings, strategic thinking, and direct support enables creative changemakers – philanthropists and institutional leaders alike – to realize their own visions and advance the common good.
COVID-19 Pandemic Emergency Response
Communities and nonprofits alike are being hit hard by the medical crisis and the resulting economic downturn. Emergencies always catalyze creative charitable responses to help people in need and support those on the front lines of the fight to save lives.
Racial Justice Urgent Response
Public concern and social responses such as the Black Lives Matters movement have created increased awareness of issues of systemic racism and injustice. The widespread need for change always catalyzes creative charitable responses to help people in need and support communal responses to create a more just, inclusive, and equitable world.
Gender Equity Urgent Response
The #MeToo movement has revealed the pervasive nature of gender-based discrimination and harassment in the workplace. The widespread need for change always catalyzes creative charitable responses to help people in need and support communal responses to create a more just, inclusive, and equitable world.
Jumpstart’s fiscal sponsorship platform is open for fast-track applications for new ways to deal with the effects of COVID-19 and its impact on our community, to deal create responses to fight racism and its effects on society, as well as efforts to fight for safety, respect, and equity in the workplace.
If you have an idea for a new project that solves an immediate problem related to one of these issues, and believe it can be supported through charitable funding, learn more about Jumpstart’s fiscal sponsorship program, and reach out to us if you are interested in applying.
