Support Our Work
Invest in a strong Birmingham
Our six year, tuition-free program provides students with an academically rigorous three-year summer program and a four-year school year program, which includes transportation and meals. Each student’s tuition cost is approximately $2,000 per year, and we make the commitment to completely cover these costs for all of our scholars.
Without Breakthrough and your support, students like ours only have an 8% chance of obtaining a post-secondary degree of any kind. Your support can help change that. You can help change the trajectory of a scholar’s life.
A college degree is more than just a piece of paper. A college degree means more earning potential over the course of a lifetime. It means a more stable start to the next generation. It means a stronger family and neighborhood. It means impacting an entire region and economy. It means closing the exposure and opportunity gap. A college degree eliminates economic and social inequities. By investing in our students, you are investing in a brighter future for them, their families, and Birmingham at large.
