Why does monthly giving matter?
Your monthly donation helps form a predictable source of support that Breakthrough can count on to help students on the path to and through college. It is the easiest way to give, and it ensures we fulfill our promise to students and families that the Breakthrough community will be there every step of the way, from 6th grade to college graduation.
What if I want to change my gift?
Your recurring online donation is secure and flexible. You choose the amount you wish to give each month and the gifts are set up to be charged automatically, like a subscription. Your giving can be changed or canceled at any time by visiting Breakthrough’s Donor Portal or contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will I receive a tax receipt?
Breakthrough provides a receipt for your first month’s gift, indicating the start of monthly payments. In each month that follows, you can expect an email confirmation of giving, but no separate receipt. At the end of the year, we will send you a full-year receipt to detail your total giving for tax purposes. If you’d like anything different, just let us know.
Why else should I join Friends of First Gen?
Monthly giving can be easier for your personal budget planning and allows you to give in smaller amounts over a longer period of time. Friends of First Gen supporters are also eligible for other benefits, such as discounts and first-access to events.
