The California Jump$tart Coalition is the 2010 Winner of the Jump$tart Coalition of the Year!!

on .

This award, given by the national Jump$tart Coalition, is in recognition of our work across many areas of financial education and literacy in California. It is a great tribute to all of you who have worked toward our goal, not just this year, but for the many years that lead to this point. We will be receiving the award in Washington D.C. on April 14th at the Annual Jump$tart Coalition Awards dinner. We've done a lot of important work over our 12+ years, set standards for other coalitions and had model leaders of our organization. Thanks to everyone who has played a part in our success and this recognition.

Dorothy Lerma - Passionate advocate for financial education

We're sad to share news of Dorothy's death in late December. She was a long-time advocate for personal financial literacy in California and a recipient of our California Jump$tart Leadership award in 2008. Dorothy was a major force in the success of CASDRAP and StudentDebtHelp.org and taught financial education across San Diego County, including Camp Pendleton. Our warmest condolences go out to her family and friends.

Memorial donations may be made to StudentDebtHelp.org, c/o Mary Snyder, P.O. Box 2855, Ramona, CA 92065.
