Alumni Trivia-Thon Info



Show Your Smarts for Gateway!

At Gateway, we believe every student is deserving of a high quality education, regardless of their background, income or learning style. Each year, we raise $2 million to provide our 800 students with a life-changing program, all at no cost to their families.

Gateway Public Schools is hosting our 2nd Annual Trivia-Thon! Our goal is to raise $10,000 to support the nearly 800 students who attend Gateway Middle and Gateway High Schools here in San Francisco.

Fundraising teams will get together virtually on Wednesday, February 17, 2021, at 6pm to compete for The Trivia Trophy and unseat the reigning Gateway Faculty All-Stars from 2020! Brush off your history books and rummage through your closet, because the theme of this year's event is Through the Decades -- you'll be quizzed on events, pop culture, fashion and more from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s!

Teams started by Gateway alumni that raise a minimum of $500 get a mailed gift pack prior to the event, five rounds of trivia, and trophies and prizes! This is a 21+ event.
