This #givingtuesday make your voice heard by
supporting Operation Jump Start.

#GivingTuesday is an international day of giving.
Everyone, anywhere, can participate! 

This Giving Tuesday, November 29th, and all the days leading up to it Operation Jump Start is raising money and awareness for Long Beach’s underserved youth.

Our campaign #givetoOJS allows people to share why giving back to the Long Beach community is important to them by sharing on their social media.Operation Jump Start believes a college education is one of the surest ways to break the cycle of poverty. Our current programs serve close 400 low-income students annually from the most vulnerable neighborhoods of Long Beach. The success of our programming and the impact it has on the community would not be possible without YOUR support.

#GiveToOJS to Triple Your Impact! 

We're so thrilled to again have the All Ways Up Foundation supporting our campaign by matching up to $10,000 of donations received on #GivingTuesday and through the end of the holidays! 
AND... any donations (up to $1,000) received through our Facebook will be matched by The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation! 

Together, we can do even more!
Help us ensure that even more students can receive the guidance and programming they need to get in, stay in, and graduate from college.

Here are additional ways to help OJS Scholars:

  • Start a Facebook fundraiser on behalf of OJS. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is matching charitable contributions to U.S. charities on Facebook (up to $1,000 per charity) on #GivingTuesday, Nov. 28th.
