JUMP Math is a Toronto-based charity, founded by mathematician, Dr. John Mighton, which is dedicated to enhancing the potential in children by encouraging an understanding and a love of math in students and educators. It offers programs, materials and training for teachers and parents to enhance math lessons for students in Grades 1-8, including French immersion students in Grades 1-6. JUMP Math unpacks math concepts into smaller, more digestible pieces, so students experience success early and often. It delivers its program throughout Canada, and has pilot programs operating in New York, California and Washington states.


JUMP Math aims to build a culture of math success and reach 2 million students by 2016.

To help them achieve these goals, our LIFT plan aims to:
  • Strengthen core management, systems and procedures to build a foundation for scalable growth
  • Raise JUMP Math’s profile and position the program as a leader in math education
  • Expand delivery and geographic reach in both Canada and the US
  • Enhance fund development capacity and diversify funding sources
As part of the LIFT plan, we’re working with JUMP Math to develop:
