Breakthrough Champions

As a stand-alone program, Breakthrough Fort Worth raises its own funding and is supported by grants and contributions designated to the program. Donors giving $1,000 or more and collaborative partners who dedicate time and resources are considered “Champions” of the program and its students. In the past year, the following Champions have led by example to ensure the best learning and support resources for the 265 underrepresented youth participating in Breakthrough. On behalf of the students, we appreciate your investment and thank you for your commitment!
