The Annual Fund is the most essential fundraising effort underway at Gateway. It is a collective undertaking by the community to meet the annual operating needs of the school, since tuition covers only two-thirds of the cost of educating a Gateway student.


Each student benefits directly from gifts to the Annual Fund. It helps pay for everything from financial assistance and our professional development program to technology upgrades.

Moreover, the Annual Fund is a symbol of our community members’ shared commitment to this generation of Gateway students. Important dollars are raised every year from across the community, and the breadth of this sponsorship reflects an abiding belief in Gateway’s ability to help each student realize their potential.

Our goal is 100% Board of Trustees, Parents, and Faculty and Staff participation. It is not the dollar given; it is the symbol of that dollar as endorsement of our school's mission and the potential that dollar has to unlock greater financial resources.

Funding the Difference

Gateway is grateful for the continuous and remarkably generous support it receives from the parents, grandparents, and friends of current students and alumni. Visit the Support Our Community page for more ways to give to the Annual Fund.
