Become a summer hero

How it works:

Invest $2500 to empower a crew: As a small team within the bigger Breakthrough community, summer crews eat  together, study together, perform skits together, and encourage their crewmates to aim for academic excellence.

Receive Hero Updates: Get to know your crew through periodic videos, photos, and updates created just for you. Learn about field trips to UC Berkeley and Silicon Valley companies, plus hands-on activities with STEM professionals, and more.

Don Your Super Hero Cape: If your schedule permits, visit the program to meet your crew in person or attend our end-of-summer celebration as a VIP. See how your gift changes lives.

Donate by check so Breakthrough receives 100% of YOUR CONTRIBUTION

Credit card donations are accepted via paypal.
