Breaking Through to Boston

Double the Successes!

Breakthrough is proud to announce that after 20 years of chronicled results in Cambridge, we are undertaking a major initiative to strengthen our services and to open a new Breakthrough site at TechBoston Academy (TBA) in Dorchester. I invite you to join our Campaign for Advancement to double Breakthrough’s impact – and double the successes! Together we can reach 500 students and train over 100 teachers every year.

With your help, more underserved kids will receive high quality out-of-school-time (OST) programming that is crucial for closing the achievement gap. In Boston, two-thirds of students lack any OST options! Your contribution will help propel us into Boston to build on our foundation, broaden our impact, and apply critical resources to support more students’ dreams of attending college.

“We are eager to introduce Breakthrough’s positive, transformative influence into the TBA community. Together, we believe we can exceed all previous measure of success.” Mary Skipper, Headmaster of TechBoston Academy in Dorchester.

The campaign will raise $3.8 million over the next three years. We invite you to join the Breakthrough’s Sustainers Circle with a three-year pledge. Or, make a one-time gift and support this Annual Fund Drive. Either way, you will contribute to an important phase in our his¬tory at a level that is right for you.

We simply cannot break through to Boston without you. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
