If you have ever felt inspired by a WIT post, invigorated after attending a WIT event, motivated by a pic of a teen #doingWIT , energized by watching our teens on TV  -- please donate. If you are a parent whose teen was impacted by being in WIT, please consider making a donation so that more teens can benefit from the WIT experience. 

Don't underestimate the impact of your contribution. Every dollar makes a difference and supports the next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs.

The goal is $100,000 by January 2018 -- with online and offline campaigns combined. 
In 2017 WIT provided $58,000 in scholarship support- making it possible for teens from all backgrounds to attend WIT.  This campaign is helping us raise funds for 2018 scholarships. WIT will allocate $60,000 of funds raised to sholarships. The rest will go towards adding a Director of Partnership to our top-notch team.
