Grow the WCATY Legacy

WCATY is built on the gratitude and loyalty of its community. It’s your contributions to WCATY that allow our programs to remain available to gifted and talented students across the state of Wisconsin. Every year, more than a quarter of our students depend on financial support. YOUR gift means that more kids have the opportunity to become WCATY kids and embrace new academic challenges.
