Be a Part of the Golden Gateway

In 1998, seven parents designed and opened Gateway and left their legacy for the students of San Francisco. In the past 25 years Gateway has educated and graduated more than 2,500 scholars, and trained and supported hundreds of educators. You can be part of the legacy that sustains Gateway.

By planning a future gift to Gateway, members of The Golden Gateway join our commitment to the resilience, sustainability and growth of our schools.

Joining The Golden Gateway is one of the most powerful actions you can take to invest in public school students and teachers. A planned gift is an investment in the belief that every young person is capable and deserving of great things, and that educators are the gateway to brighter futures. 

We have prepared additional information about planned giving, including different avenues for planning giving and sample language for a will:
