Creative Ways to Give

Make your gift go even further!

Many employers match their employees’ gifts to charitable institution, which can make your donation have double – possible even triple – the impact for Breakthrough students!  Some companies will match the gifts of employee spouses and retired employees as well. Ask the human resources or benefits office at your workplace for more information.

For more information, please contact Eleanor Siff at

 Plan Your Own Fundraiser 

Breakthrough is fortunate to be the beneficiary of community events organized by individuals, corporate partners, and businesses. Events range from in-home events and golf tournaments such as the annual Kenneth Vickers Memorial Golf Tournament. The funds raised at each 3rd party event go directly to helping our students reach their highest potential and be the first in their families to go to college. For more information on hosting a 3rd  party event, contact Kate Garrett at  or 512.692.9444 x 126.
