Illuminator Society

Your membership in the Illuminator Society will support Pathways Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s premier pre-college program. Pathways Milwaukee is designed to assist lower-income, first-generation college prospects who have the potential to succeed in college. The primary focus of the program is to develop students to be academically sound, socially and spiritually strong, and help them with the financial resources to continue their education beyond high school.

The Illuminator Society is a newly created giving society that recognizes the generous donations of those who contribute $500 or more to Pathways Milwaukee in a fiscal year. The name Illuminator Society signifies the commitment of donors to light the path, not only for the students participating in the program today, but for future generations as well, as they overcome many obstacles to prepare themselves for college and beyond.
