Giving at Gateway: Thanks for Your Support!
As a public charter school, Gateway College Prep depends on our generous supporters to help make up the gap in funding we experience in comparison to independent school districts - around $2,009 per student each year (read more on the state study here). We invite both our school families and local community members to be a part of Giving at Gateway. Whether through annual giving or as a part of the capital campaign, our supporters help make Gateway great! Please read below for more information on our needs and how we meet them through tax-deductible, charitable giving.
Unlike traditional public independent school districts (ISDs), public charter schools like Gateway Prep do not receive any local tax revenue, have no taxing authority and receive no state aid to cover the cost of buildings and facilities, as well as other "extras" outside the classroom experience.
Our charitable fundraising efforts help to bridge this funding gap and provide the financial resources to offer the quality Gateway Prep educational experience.
Your tax-deductible contributions make the Gateway experience possible, including:
- Smaller learning community with outstanding classroom educators
- Excellent, green-built learning, athletic, performance, and gathering facilities
- University Interscholastic League (UIL) athletics, fine arts, and academic competition
Our charitable giving involves two entities: the Gator Annual Fund and the Legacy Capital Campaign. The Gator Annual Fund provides a stable source of funding year to year that addresses ongoing needs. There are a number of giving levels, but families at Gateway College Prep are asked to consider a minimum annual gift of $1,200 per student attending, payable monthly or in a single payment. The details and benefits of Gator Annual Fund giving can be found by clicking here.
The Legacy Capital Campaign is in the launch phase, with a goal of finishing out the rest of the Gateway College Prep campus. Find out more about this campaign by clicking here.
