BENEFITING: JUMA VENTURES
Let's face it - young people these days are experiencing harder economic times than their parents. Not getting the financial education they need to be successful makes matters worse. There's an easy solution - money mentoring.
Come join our new crew, SF Parties with Purpose, in changing the world one party (and many margaritas) at a time. We are a new philanthropic network of young professionals who invest in the leaders of the future. We crowdsource donations to groups that teach young people how to navigate the real world and develop skills not usually taught in schools - like financial literacy.
For our inaugural event, we are supporting the legendary work of JumaVentures, a Bay Area organization that empowers young people with economic skills. Their CollegeSet program equips high school students with a financial literacy education and a fee-free transactional bank account and college savings account. Students set their own financial goals and start saving money for college. We, as donors, match their goals. Our donations are then matched by JumaVentures corporate sponsors. Together, we jumpstart the development of a new generation of financially literate citizens.
