is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation, with an annual operating budget of approximately 3.5 million dollars. Our major source of income is from fees for services, which we receive from state funds. However, these sources are not adequate to fund the total cost of providing quality programs and staff. To make Gateway Center’s dreams a continued reality for our special people, we must make up over 15% of our total budgeted with contributions, bequests in wills, charitable trusts, grants, and fund-raising events.
