Make A Difference. Make A Donation.

This is a challenging time but we are not without hope. Wisconsin Youth Company has been helping children thrive beyond the school day since 1974. As we continue to move through the COVID-19 crisis, Wisconsin Youth Company is working to provide emergency services and supplies to families in need. We cannot do this alone. Make a donation to support Wisconsin Youth Company in our efforts now and for many years to come.

Donate Now


Families choose our programs for a variety of reasons. Whatever the reason, the affordability of our programs is always an important consideration for families. We strive to keep our fees as low as possible. Yet, providing quality programs with talented staff has a cost. We offer scholarships for families in need. We strive to make the application process simple for families and provide funds whenever possible. Your contribution to the scholarship fund can make a great impact for a working family. Just $100 a month, can be the difference between a child experiencing an enriching, active, social after school program or going home to an empty house. Please donate today to support children in your community.

Neighborhood Centers

Wisconsin Youth Company operates two neighborhood centers, Elver Park and Theresa Terrace. Both centers are partially funded by City of Madison and Dane County grants. Wisconsin Youth Company and our fundraising efforts support the rest of programming at these centers. All programs offered at the centers are low cost or free of charge to families in these neighborhoods.
