Invest in Brighter Futures & A Strong Central Texas

Our students want to become the first in their families to graduate from college. But without Breakthrough and your support, students like ours only have a 8% chance of obtaining a post-secondary degree of any kind. You can help change that. You can help make college dreams come true.


The value of a college degree is more than just the increased earning potential of the person who earns it. It’s the long-lasting ripple effect through an entire family and neighborhood, as family, friends and community members are themselves inspired to follow their own vision. It’s the impact on an entire region and economy, as educational attainment closes the opportunity gap and decreases social and economic inequity.

By investing in our students you are investing in a brighter future for them, their families and our community.
