The Gift of Education - Helping PLATO Help Others

Your education has helped you in life, and now you can help the lives of others by donating to the PLATO Fund.  The PLATO Fund has been established to help provide financial assistance to returning adult students at UW-Madison.  Your tax deductible donation to the PLATO Fund supports scholarships to deserving students as they pursue degrees at the UW.  Learn about students who have received PLATO scholarships.  Help make a college degree possible for an individual who, because of financial circumstance, might be denied the gift of education.
