Fund-A-Scholar 2022
Fund-A-Scholar 2022

This year’s event sold out in record time,
but you can still be a part of this critical fundraising effort.
Here’s how:

1. Join our waitlist. We will contact you by October 14 if any seats become available.

2. Bid on our exciting silent auction items. Our silent auction will be open for bidding starting October 21.

3. Embrace the spirit of Fund-A-Scholar and personally contribute or combine efforts with friends, family or colleagues to cover the cost of a Breakthrough scholar to participate in Breakthrough’s life-changing work. It costs $2,500 to fund a scholar for one year and every dollar counts!

Fund-A-Scholar is Breakthrough Atlanta’s annual fundraising event which raises critical funds for underserved students to attend our life-changing, year-round educational programs. 

Since holding our inaugural Fund-A-Scholar event in 2016, proceeds have helped equip hundreds of students with the tools and resources to succeed in high school, college and beyond.

In 2021, we raised more than $390K at the event, which also coincided with our 25th anniversary celebration. Funds raised surpassed any previous year’s event and exceeded our goal by 20%.
