Save the Date for the 2020 luncheon

Thank You for Making Gateway History!

We extend our sincere gratitude to the students, staff and hundreds of community members who joined us for Gateway's 2020 Matters of the Mind, our first virtual gathering in the event's long history.

Together, we raised nearly $320,000 for the individualized programs and supports that allow all students to thrive at Gateway -- even in the midst of distance learning and social uncertainty. Wow!

Making an Impact Today

You can make an impact today by supporting classroom purchases, the silent auction and the fund-a-need. All contributions support the Matters of the Mind Luncheon goal of raising $350,000!

In talks drawn from his six years of research and travel, Tough challenges the status quo, revealing how higher education and social mobility really work, and what we can do to make it more equitable for all.
