Other Ways to Support Gateway

Gifts by Wire Transfer, Donor Advised Funds and Stock

Wire transfers provide immediate funds to Gateway’s schools and eliminate the frustration of lost mail. For our account information, including bank, routing and account numbers, please email Chanda Lockhart, chief development officer, at [email protected].

Donor Advised Funds are an incredible way to support Gateway and put your personal philanthropic investments to work. If you need any support making a DAF donation, please email Chanda Lockhart, chief development officer, at [email protected].

#HalfMyDAF - founded by Jennifer and David Risher - is an initiative that, since 2020, has moved more than $41 million from donor advised funds to nonprofits that transform those donations into action. Commit to spending down your DAF and #HalfMyDAF will match your donations to Gateway! 

Making a stock donation is an investment in Gateway that can also help you avoid capital gains and reduce income tax burden.
