Gateway Foundation

The Gateway Foundation is a private 501(c)3 organization that is a separate entity from the college. The Foundation's mission is to advance Gateway through fundraising and friend-raising. The Foundation was created in 2003 when the college reconstituted a dormant foundation that was associated with one of the vocational campuses prior to the creation of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS). The Foundation can have up to 30 members and a list of current Board Members is attached. The Foundation Board and its committees generally convene quarterly. The current committees include Annual Fund, Development, Finance and Nominating. Several other committees meet periodically as needed including Investment and Executive Committees. 

All gifts to Gateway Community & Technical College are tax deductible. Checks may be made payable to Gateway.
