Give the Gift of Enrichment 

Gifts of Time and Talent

Our programs can always benefit from more hands, ideas and smiles. Parent and youth volunteers can assist with specific sessions or classes, help with events, and more. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Kelly at

Gifts of Financial Support

Your support gives more students access to after-school enrichment experiences, as well as supports development of additional enrichment offerings for all of our learners.

Credit Card

Gifts by credit card may be made online here.

Check or Money Order

Send a check or money order made payable to Breakwater Learning:

Gifts of Appreciated Securities

Gifts of securities such as stocks, mutual fund shares or other appreciated assets can be a great tax-efficient method for making a gift to Breakwater. In most instances, you can take a tax deduction for the full market value of the gift and avoid any capital gains tax.

Matching gifts

You may be able to double, or even triple, your gift's impact on Breakwater Enrichment. More than 1,000 companies offer some level of corporate matching for their employees' philanthropic interests. Breakwater happily recognizes you for the full amount of your own gift plus any resulting corporate match. Contact your company's personnel or human resources office to find out if your employer, or your spouse's employer, has a matching gift program.
