What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?


Gateway Community College Foundation raises funds to award academic, technology, and workforce scholarships to eligible GCC students.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

The Gateway Community College Foundation Emergency Assistance grants program assists students in academic degree and workforce certification programs who experience unexpected short-term financial hardship or crisis and who need assistance to help them achieve program completion. The program provides holistic wraparound support services to students including working with the student to develop a household budget. Eligible students may qualify for emergency assistance to cover expenses such as food, rent, utilities, childcare, car repair, etc. Payments go directly to vendors rather than students.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Gateway Community College Foundation offers a mini-grant program to which Gateway faculty and staff can apply. If selected, the Foundation underwrites professional development initiatives. These grants enhance the grantees' professional development and help them to apply what they have learned to their daily work with other faculty, staff and students.

Population(s) Served

Gateway Community College Foundation sponsors special events to engage alumni, donors and community members in the life of the campus. Special events include a donor scholar brunch, a Hall of Fame dinner and celebration, and Alumni Network get-togethers.

Population(s) Served

The Gateway Foundation raises funds to purchase laptops that are awarded to students through a competitive application. In addition, the Foundation purchases and donates laptops to the Gateway library for students to borrow for academic use.

Population(s) Served

More than 30,000 students attended classes and graduated from Gateway since its inception more than 30 years ago. In 2023, the Gateway Foundation launched an Alumni Network to engage alumni to act as advocates for Gateway, mentors and coaches for current students, and a resource and support system for one another.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
