The Jay County Promise is a program to encourage all Jay County youth to continue their education beyond high school. It provides a 529 College Savings plan to each Jay County student in grades K-3. Reseach shows that children who have a college savings plan in their name are over seven times more likely to go to college, and over four times more likely to graduate! This program plants seeds of hope for every Jay County student, and provides education and enouragement for them and their families to continue on the path toward a post-secondary education.
The Portland Foundation is a proud community partner in the Jay County Promise program, but we cannot do this alone-we need Champions! Champions are people in the community who support the mission of the Jay County Promise and believe that every child deserves a chance at education. We encourage anyone who is able to become a Champion for a child or a classroom today!
