2016-17 Annual Report



From 2016 to 2017, our team grew stronger, our supporters lifted us to new heights, and we impacted more kids than ever before. We’re inspiring each and every student to dream big and imagine what's possible. We say it all the time, but it remains true:

We can’t do what we do without you.



The higher the skyscraper, the stronger the foundation required.

Building a strong foundation is a process. It takes patience and time. Coordination and communication. The skyscraper that everyone admires is the final result. But without the process, there is no final result.

This year at JA®, we’ve done just that: set the foundation for big projects in years to come. With the help of our volunteers, donors, students and educators, we’ve laid the groundwork for two towering skyscrapers materializing in our future: JA Finance Park® Montgomery County and the DC Project Campaign.

JA Finance Park® Montgomery County will open its doors in 2018, serving 12,000 students annually. The DC Project Campaign, a flagship facility housing all of JA’s K-12 programs, will bring our most ambitious vision to the nation’s capital.

Our robust and tenacious plans are in place. We’ve drafted the blueprints for success. But there’s still work to be done. After all, success is a journey, not a destination. And it’s a journey we can’t make without you.

Because of your generous contributions and time, you’re helping us help them—over 66,000 bright minds this year in Greater Washington. Because of you, we’re bridging the gap between school life and real life and growing the next generation into the leaders of tomorrow. You’re digging deep so that we can build high.

An inspired generation is the foundation upon which we build our future.

And that’s a foundation that will stand the test of time.  

Thank you.
