Fund-a-Scholar is a campaign that allows 100% of your donation to go directly to Summer Program costs. Though the program is provided free of charge to under-resourced students, Breakthrough spends roughly $2,500 per student for this six-week, full-time, transformational program. And we don’t use transformational lightly. Last summer, students gained an astonishing 8 months of learning in both reading and math by attending this program.
By supporting hard-working Houston students in middle school, we greatly improve long-term outcomes. Again this year, 100% of our high school seniors were accepted into four-year universities across the country with the majority of expenses covered by scholarships.
It is worth noting that each of these students began their Breakthrough journey through our renowned Summer Program.
Your donation to this crucial campaign supports Houston’s next generation of successful college students.
