Participate in the Annual WCATY Donation Drive
It's no secret that you are who keeps WCATY going, and it’s your contributions to WCATY that allow our programs to remain available to gifted students across the state of Wisconsin. Every year more than a third of our students depend on financial support. YOUR gift means that more kids have the opportunity to become WCATY kids and embrace challenge. WCATY is currently seeking to raise $120,000 in order to support students in 2015-2016 WCATY Programs. Get involved. Help us grow WCATY legacy! Help us beat this year's goal!
Grow the WCATY Legacy
WCATY is built on the gratitude of its students, the pride of its parents, and the loyalty of its community. We are grateful for all your contributions – donation of your time, expertise, leadership, talent, and ideas.
How to help:
1. Make a Tax-Deductible Donation
Make a tax-deductible donation through the UW Foundation, designated to “WCATY”. Secure online gifts for WCATY scholarships can be made here.
or by sending a personal check to:
Wisconsin Center for Academically Talented Youth
Suite 264 Teacher Education Building
225 North Mills Street, Madison, WI 53706
2. Enroll in a Gift Match Program
First, locate your company’s name on the UW Foundation website.
Next, obtain a matching gift form from your Human Resources office, or check your company’s website for downloadable forms, and send the completed form with your gift to the WCATY address listed above. WCATY will do the rest.
3. Remember WCATY in Your Will
Leaving a bequest ensures that your support of academic excellence at WCATY will continue. Charitable bequests can be made as easily as inserting a sentence such as “I give $10,000 to WCATY” into your will. Such bequests are revocable and can be revised at any time. Bequests are tax-smart: they can qualify for an estate tax deduction.
4. Support WCATY’s Endowment Fund
Help build WCATY’s endowment fund, held at the Madison Community Foundation.
Foundation staff will guide you through the process.
