The MATC Foundation Inc. is a non-profit that builds public-private partnerships to support MATC students with scholarships and emergency assistance as they prepare for careers important to our regional economy. 

Your support produces results. MATC’s scholarship recipients have a retention rate nearly three times higher than the rate for the student population as a whole. And these students are overwhelmingly students of color who can directly help build a diverse talent pipeline.  

Here are some ways to get involved! Direct your gift using the drop-down menu below.

  • Triple your donor investment through the Ellen and Joe Checota MATC Scholarship Program - which offers a $2:$1 match for any donation or pledge (two years or under) to this new scholarship aimed at accelerating the talent pipeline by offering full-ride scholarships for 90+ MATC technical diploma and certificate programs. 
  • Support a student through an emergency through the Dreamkeepers Emergency Assistance Fund, which provides immediate support to keep students in school even when urgent needs arise.
  • Break down financial barriers with a gift to the MATC Promise, which offers free tuition to eligible students. MATC was a trailblazer in 2016 when we launched the first Promise program in Wisconsin and more than 1,700 scholarships have been awarded since the program's inception.
