Giving back to the communities where we live and work is part of who we are as a company. Gateway is proud to foster an environment where each employee feels valued, supported and encouraged to be their true selves at work and within their community.
Gateway’s employees are the heart of our culture of giving and we continually strive to enhance initiatives and bolster resources that nurture community engagement.
Gateway Charitable Giving Program
The Gateway Charitable Giving Program provides our employees with an opportunity to support and engage with the community in positive ways and coordinate engagement on behalf of the firm. This program enables employees to direct a monetary contribution from the company to one or multiple local, non-profit organizations addressing issues in our surrounding communities. These organizations were selected based on employee interests and impact to our region.
In addition, the program seeks and encourages ongoing collaboration and partnership that extended beyond monetary donations. To learn more about the partnerships we have established, please see our Community Network, below
