A Message from the Board Chair
I have been a Gateway Community College Foundation Board member since 2021, and extremely honored to now serve as Chair of the Board. I am so proud of the way the GCC Foundation doubled and redoubled their efforts to support students determined to transform their lives during unprecedented challenges and changes in 2020. The Gateway Foundation met and far exceeded its 2020 goals, raising the most funds ever; coming at a time when the needs were so great. As Board Chair. I pledge that we will continue those efforts in 2021 and beyond.
The GCC Foundation will help build a bridge to equity for Gateway students. We will work together to do everything within our power to advance equity, diversity, and educational excellence; bring opportunity within reach for everyone; and help build the skilled workforce tomorrow’s world will need.
Our Board initiatives have enabled us to significantly increase scholarships and grants to Gateway students and enhance the college’s programs and facilities. I am excited about the possibilities awaiting our students, faculty, and staff. With the help of our caring donors and community partners, I know the Gateway Community Foundation will continue to help Gateway students achieve their dreams of a brighter future.
