Events @ Gateway

Gateway has only been able to grow and thrive for the past 25 years because of our incredible community: parents, alumni, neighbors, community partners, and public education champions from every sector and facet of our city. We hold events throughout the year to raise crucial funds that support our students and teachers, build connection and community, and celebrate the amazing things we can accomplish together on behalf of our kids.

Matters of the Mind

Our signature event! Each October we invite a luminary speaker to address our audience about their work and their perspective on how we can all make a difference, but that’s just the beginning! We honor our faculty and community members who are making an impact in the lives of our students, celebrate our young people, and have one heck of a party.

These intimate, bespoke events are opportunities for our community members to discover how their passions and interests intersect with our work at Gateway and what our partners are doing throughout San Francisco to make our community more just and equitable. Expect fine dining, refreshing beverages, and fascinating conversations.

Our signature family fundraiser also happens to be one of the best parties of the year! Each spring we invite our community to join us for a night of dancing, cocktails, games and delicious food. This is a 21+ event for parents/caregivers, faculty and staff, alumni families, and Gateway's board members. Tickets go on sale in January, and are available on a sliding scale from free to $100/person.
