How Can You Help?
Gatesway Foundation is here to support uniquely-abled individuals, as well as serve the community. Donations, fundraisers, and community projects are essential for the individuals we serve, the campus we maintain, and the community. As a state-funded, non-profit organization, these campaigns are necessary to continue the work Helen Gates envisioned and brought to life over 60 years ago.
