Organization description:
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 change-makers — philanthropists and institutional leaders alike — to realize their own visions and advance the common good. Our fiscal sponsorship program is designed to provide a simple solution to forming a new charitable project. The idea is to lower the cost of market entry, speed time to action, and provide basic management skills to project leaders who hope to grow their initiative into a 501(c)(3).
