About Jump Math:

Founded in 2001, Jump Math  develops math programs for children in  grades 1 to 8  and encourages  children to think mathematically.  The math programs are based on the latest cognitive science research and innovative instructional approaches.  The charity offers  educators, tutors and parents complete materials as well as training  based on its math programs.  In F2015, $1.3m or 35% of total revenue came from program training and the sales of program resources. Its programs are primarily sold to school districts, teachers, and parents.  Income earned from sales is re-invested into the organization to further its mission.  Currently, the charity's math programs are used by over 85,000 children in over 400 schools, tutoring programs, and at home.

Charity Intelligence has analyzed JUMP Math since 2010 and has consistently found it to be a high-impact charity. JUMP Math is included in Ci's 2016 Canadian Charity Impact Fund, one of 10 charities with high impact in the social services sector.
