Make A Difference. Make A Donation.

Your generosity shines a light on opportunities for children to thrive beyond the school day. Access to opportunities means programs where children feel safe to explore their interests, engage with peers, and practice independence with the help and guidance of caring adult mentors. Your support grows children’s imaginations, social skills, and curiosity through hands on learning and enrichment activities. Throughout our neighborhoods, on our playgrounds and in our schools, together we reach for a brighter future for all children. For more information, please contact Emily Wills, fund development coordinator at ewills@wisconsinyouthcompany.org or 608-235-1764.

Greatest Need

In order to adapt quickly to needs as they arise, it takes flexibility, creativity, and generosity. Your donation allows programming to adapt in a way that ensures children, families, and staff are able to thrive despite whatever challenge our community is facing.

Scholarship Fund

For the past 10 years, Wisconsin Youth Company has not turned a single child away due to an inability to pay. Thanks to people like you, programs continue to be accessible to any family looking for a safe space for their child to play, learn, and grow beyond the school day.

Neighborhood Center Support

Elver Park Neighborhood Center and Theresa Terrace Neighborhood Center are pillars of community support, offering child care and essential services for children and families. Your support ensures that community members have access to vital resources from after school and summer programs to community events and the Elver Park Neighborhood Center’s community food pantry.

Our Proud Supporters
