Driving dreams forward
To work, school, dinner parties, family reunions, and more—every single day our partners keep New York City moving. And we want to support the causes that move them forward. Uber's Project Jumpstart supports local initiatives that are closest to our NYC partners' hearts, and empowers them to spark change in their community.

How it works
1. Applications open for submission
Starting today, partners can submit one application for the sponsorship of a cause that is important to them and, if chosen, we'll contribute funding for the project.
2. Applications evaluated
Uber will collect and evaluate all sponsorship applications on an ongoing basis until the end of the month. We'll also ask NYC partners to vote on what initiatives they think should be awarded grants.
3. Sponsorship announced
Partners who have been selected will be notified of our sponsorship to benefit their cause by the end of the month. The number of winners each month may vary based on size and scope of projects submitted.
Leaders in our community
Tashi | Bringing our Tibetan community together
Tashi’s Project Jumpstart grant will help the Tibetan Community of New York and New Jersey (TCNYNJ) build a community center in Queens, where Tibetans can find a home away from home and celebrate their culture.
Narcisse | Inspiring innovation with robotics
Narcisse's grant will go to support Team 5030, Second Mouse of FIRST Robotics, a program that teaches kids how to develop robots from the ground up and helps them showcase their talents in state-wide competitions.
