Donate to ITA

By making a donation to ITA you join a community of supporters who believe in transforming and empowering a small number of Wisconsin’s qualified and motivated students of color and low income. Supporting ITA is supporting the brilliant young innovators who will bring change to their communities, Wisconsin, and the world.

We invite you to join us in making a donation towards the youth as they pursue their dreams in technology. Your donation will enable ITA to support the dreams of brilliant youth, engage them in innovative and create ways to provide them the skill sets needed in their academic pursuits, STEM and help close the equity gap.

If you have questions about your donation,  please contact Ron Jetty at ron.jetty@wisc.edu or 6082652408.

Current Donors

We love our donors! We are grateful to the leadership of those who have accepted the challenges of keeping a long-term investment in education. Together, we are helping empower brilliant and motivated youth, by providing them the necessary tools to continue with their high school education and advance to higher education.

Once ITA students are selected, they go through rigorous academic and technology preparation which is held both in their communities and at UW–Madison Campus. At the end of their time with ITA, students leave with the confidence and abilities to be successful higher education students.

  • Over 95% of ITA graduates were admitted to a post-secondary education institution.
  • From those, 53% are accepted and enroll at UW–Madison and are inducted to PEOPLE as PEOPLE Scholars.

ITA has a strong foundation to help students of color and low income backgrounds, but there are more students who would benefit from this opportunity. Our goal is to expand the ITA program to benefit more qualified Wisconsin students.
