Jumpstart Fundraising Technical Assistance Program Grant Application Open Jan. 27 – Feb. 16!

Jumpstart is a Fundraising Technical Assistance Competitive Grant Opportunity offered to Kern County nonprofits. It is a partnership among Kern Community Foundation, Network for Good and the County of Kern. Through Jumpstart, a small cohort of Kern nonprofits benefits from the use of state-of-the-art fundraising tools and individualized coaching for a 12-month period at a greatly reduced tuition cost. Via this unique private-public partnership, we, as a community, are working to improve nonprofit sustainability one agency at a time.
