We are so excited for our third Fit for Growth Gala!  Remarkable things have happened this year, with a great deal more to come!

We invite you to be a part of this exciting time for KTEC.

“An investment in Knowledge pays the best interest.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

Keep Quality Education Thriving!  When you invest in KTEC, you support a high performing, 4K-8th Grade technology-focused, public charter school.  Since 2007, KTEC has excelled in student achievement quality, technology-based learning programs and learning labs attended by teachers from many Wisconsin districts.

All proceeds from this year’s Gala will be applied to our current priority project, an Innovation Lab that will benefit not only KTEC students, but the Kenosha community.  Be a part of something that will have a positive affect for years to come!

Click here to learn more about out Innovation Lab. 

This year the Gala will be held at Kenosha’s historic Madrigrano Marina Shores.  Step back into a time of more glamor and grace.  Enjoy an open bar beverage by the fireplace or on the veranda while indulging in a selection of scrumptious appetizers. 

Mingle with fellow community leaders who support the future generation of leaders.

Bid on enticing items and adventures.

Savor a mouthwatering dinner.

Enjoy the magic of Joe Diamond.  This is not your child’s magician.  Mr. Diamond will have you baffled and a little bit dazed with his abilities.  He is a self-described paranormal magician, mind reader, and illusionist.  There is really no way to understand what he does until you see him! 

Lean more at and watch him at work on YouTube

There are many opportunities for you to support KTEC and our mission.

Your ticket purchases and bids will go a long way to help, but we also welcome silent auction items or monetary donations.

All of our generous donors will be recognized at the event, in the program, and through all of our digital resources.  

We are looking for items, services, and adventures starting at a $50 value.

Please contact Kristen Kief to make donation arrangements.   262-359-7133

The Kenosha School of Technology Enhanced Curriculum Endowment Fund exists to create and maintain a state-of-the-art, technology-infused campus for all KTEC students, while acting as a learning laboratory for education professionals.

KTEC continues to grow.  We have over 900 students attending the 2015-2016 school year, with a projection of 1200 students by 2017.  As a charter school within the KUSD public school system, KTEC receives 80% of the regular public school’s per-student allocation.  Creative fundraising and financial responsiblity are excersized; however, we depend on corporate and community partnerships to continue to our sucess.

Our Fit for Growth Fund supports three areas vital to KTEC’s mission and growth:

  • Facility Expansion/Modernization
  • Professional Development/Dissemination
  • Updating Technology


We will continue our Fit for Growth Campaign to help provide the needed funds to support our mission of maintaning up-to-date technology & quality learning facilities to all KTEC students!Donate directly to the KTEC Endowment Fund
