Breaking News! Breakthrough Philadelphia Receives Quick-Response Challenge Gift!


We are thrilled to report that Breakthrough has received a $50,000 challenge gift pledge from a Breakthrough board member.  The challenge funds will be released as they are matched one-to-one by new gifts or pledges, and we’ve been given a goal to match this gift by midnight, August 31, 2017!


Please, join us for this wonderful Quick Response Challenge! Let's not miss this opportunity to double the impact of our gifts and our efforts!


The board member challenge gift pledge expressly affirms the course that Breakthrough Philadelphia laid out in its 2015 Strategic Plan, and it supports Executive Director Dr. Robbin Smart’s current program priorities – continuing to strengthen the College Program; evaluating an increase in Teaching Fellow stipends to secure top-tier candidates, and improving the assessment tools that demonstrate program impact. 


Click here to give or pledge today or contact  Dr. Robbin Smart, Executive Director at or 215-951-6996.  Bruce Bekker, Development Director, can be reached at or215-261-6706. We’re happy to discuss options for direct gifts, gifts of stock, wire transfers, or pledges.


Thank you for supporting the important mission of Breakthrough of Greater Philadelphia.
