A CELEBRATION OF STUDENTS BEATING THE ODDS TO BECOME THE FIRST IN THEIR FAMILIES TO GRADUATE FROM COLLEGE

Breakthrough’s 2019 Beat the Odds Benefit Concert will raise funds and awareness to support Breakthrough’s mission of creating first-generation college graduates. The event will include a performance by roots-rock band Dawes guest and will be preceded by a fun and inspiring VIP Party and Program. Sponsors and their guests will enjoy tickets to the show with access to a private viewing deck, valet parking, dedicated open bar, signature barbeque favorites, and VIP concert credentials. Join us for an unforgettable evening of music under the stars to support Breakthrough’s programs and students.

HELP OUR STUDENTS BEAT THE ODDS

In Central Texas, only 8% of middle school students from low-income communities go on to earn a college degree. To combat this trend, Breakthrough makes a 12-year commitment to help children become the first in their families to graduate from college. Our program focuses on a combination of extended learning, comprehensive advising, and leadership experiences to help students prepare for, persist through, and ultimately, graduate from college. From middle school to high school to college through college graduation, we are there every step of the way.

Breakthrough does whatever it takes to help our students beat the odds to become first-generation college graduates. And we cannot do it without you. By supporting Breakthrough, you’ll make a child’s dream of a college education come true.
