The Annual Fund

Like all independent schools, we structure our tuition so that is affordable to the widest possible range of families. Annual Fund gifts bridge the gap between tuition and the true cost of providing each student the extraordinary opportunities of a Gateway education. Each academic year, the school relies on gifts to the Annual Fund to provide special resources for students and faculty that distinguish our school. These gifts allow us to invest in our rich academic and co-curricular programs that enrich each child’s educational experience at Gateway.

Gifts to the Annual Fund are a direct investment in the education of every Gateway student. Because dollars from Annual Giving are unrestricted and immediately available, your generosity can be put to good use right now, addressing real needs and having real impact. Every gift, no matter the size, is significant. For more information about the Annual Fund, see our Annual Fund FAQ’s page.
