Jump In! It’s a rallying cry we’ve heard since our childhood, encouraging us to get involved, to put our best foot in the ring as an opportunity for mutual growth, and a contribution towards making the whole greater than the sum of its parts.
We’ve always felt that the leap is worth the risk – it’s one of our guiding principles and it’s one of the reasons we formed Jump 15 years ago. Through our journey at Jump, we have contributed to over 40 different charitable, community, or social ventures, ranging from the arts, social responsibility and mental and physical health – the list goes on.

It’s always been important for us to give back – and pay forward – by using whatever means we have to support organizations whose work we value. Often that gift was time, other times it was money. Where we’ve found the greatest reward and have built our strongest relationships is when we’ve leveraged our expertise to support causes that we believe in.
That’s why, in our 15th year of business, we’ve taken the plunge to JUMP IN. Jump In! is a charitable initiative that will leverage our team’s greatest strengths in support of the communities and causes that our employees care about. Jump In! will give our team members the opportunity to shape the direction and focus of our charitable efforts. Our mission is one of meaning and purpose. We are confident that Jump In! will result in lasting impact, more meaningful and fulfilling work, and a stronger community, both inside and outside of the office.

It’s that simple. And while we’re announcing the Jumping In program now, it’s one that has been there in principle for the past 15 years…we’ve just been too busy to get around to formalizing it. If you’re curious about our charitable legacy (of which we’re tremendously proud, here is a list of the organizations we’ve supported in the past:
