Your investment in Junior Achievement makes a difference!

Junior Achievement relies on individual, corporate and foundation gifts to advance its mission and programs. We do not receive any state or federal grants. Demand for our programs continues to grow each year and there is a growing list of schools interested in our programs.

Junior Achievement has a wide range of giving options tailored to match our needs with the preferences of our investors.

Invest as a JA BizTown or JA Finance Park Business Sponsor

Business sponsors provide financial support to JA BizTown and JA Finance Park. These sponsorships create an engaging, real-world atmosphere for our students learning about money management and careers. They also help underwrite the programs, making them available to schools at a reasonable price.

Invest as a Day or Week Sponsor

Investment as a Day Sponsor in JA BizTown or JA Finance Park helps to offset the cost associated with running the program for one day, or multiple days. Associates from the sponsoring company are welcome to volunteer during your day(s) of sponsorship to get the full experience!

Sponsor an Event

Donations and sponsorships of our special fundraising and student events help to fund JA programs to students across Oregon and SW Washington. With several events throughout the year, you have multiple opportunities to support JA.
