A life of poverty can be changed with your help

While it’s true that kindness costs us nothing, it’s also true that a broken life requires not only kindness, but kindness in action. A person with mental illness needs a safe place to recover wellness and experience the warmth of community.  A person mired in poverty needs mentoring and support to regain stability and a sense of purpose. Breakthrough’s dedicated and passionate staff and volunteers provide these very things—and much more—in an effective and nurturing way. But we cannot do it alone. Our organization and those we serve depend on the generous support of people who partner with us to provide those struggling with poverty and mental illness not a handout, but a hand up.

Let kindness move you to take action, and visit our secure donation portal today. Or, if you prefer to contribute by mail, you can send a check to:

Other Ways To Donate

Legacy Giving

Your passion for helping the poor and marginalized can continue long after your lifetime with legacy giving. No matter how small or large, these gifts help ensure the future of Breakthrough’s vital services.  Plus, when you notify us of a planned gift, you’ll join our exclusive Ventures in Legacy Society.

Here are a few ways you can help others break through for generations to come: 

  • Leaving a bequest to Breakthrough in your will or revocable trust, either as a designated dollar amount or a percentage of total wealth, or by giving the remainder of your estate after the distribution of all other bequests.
  • Designating Breakthrough as a beneficiary in a life insurance policy or in your IRA, 401(k), or 403(b). 
  • Setting up a charitable lead trust to assist both your beneficiaries and Breakthrough
  • A life-income gift naming Breakthrough as a beneficiary, such as a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder trust

To learn more about the best legacy giving options for you and your family, please contact Rachel Newell, Director of Development, at 316-665-8616. And if you’ve already included Breakthrough in your estate plans, we’d love to know!

Donate A Car

Why Donate your car to charity? When donating your automobile to Breakthrough you can avoid the anxiety and hassle of selling to a private party and dealing with used car salesmen in a haggling over a trade-in. Donating your vehicle also avoids the potential repair costs of unused cars, boats or trucks, and with free door-to-door for all donors, our vehicle donors are never out of pocket when donating. Donate for Charity can even pick up your vehicle at the auto repair shop or by the side of the road!

Your car donation directly benefits Breakthrough. CLICK HERE TO VISIT DONATE FOR CHARITY.

Donate For Charity distributes the funds raised from the sale of your vehicle donation directly to Breakthrough to help maintain and expand our work in and around the Wichita, KS area. Donate For Charity sells your donated cars through a national network of auction and salvage houses to ensure the maximum donation possible is given to the charity you select.
