Results and Impact

In F2020, JUMP Math reported that students participating in the Math Minds research study (a collaboration between the University of Calgary, various school districts and JUMP Math), saw improvement in Canadian Test of Basic Skills scores. CTBS measures computation, conceptual understanding and problem solving. Over the course of five years, students' CTBS scores improved from the 19th percentile to the 38th percentile in computation, from the 25th percentile to the 57th percentile in conceptual understanding, and from the 39th percentile to the 59th percentile in problem solving. 

While Ci highlights these key results, they may not be a complete representation of JUMP Math’s results and impact.

Comments & Contact

Comments added by the Charity:

The 42% Overhead represents 23% Admin + 19% Fundraising. JUMP Math is a five-star rated charity and education publisher.

The pandemic had an impact on fundraising revenues. The duration of JUMP Math's major gifts cycle expands beyond one year and JUMP Math expects to see more revenue to support its mission. JUMP Math expects to see some years are higher than others but in the long term, donations are steady.
