Gateway College and Career Academy is an early college public high school launched in 2004, as an answer to the growing number of students who were disconnected from their education and not on track to obtain their high school diplomas. The school not only supports students in meeting their high school goals but also gives them direct access to, and an understanding of the benefits of obtaining a college degree or career technical education certificate. We help our students transition to college via dual enrollment in high school and college courses. Students and families who have not had successful or fulfilling high school experiences, have flourished within GCCA’s small and innovative school program!
Your donation will have a profound impact on our community: the establishment of the GCCA student emergency fund. As you know, life can be unpredictable, and unexpected emergencies can often arise that put a strain on our students’ finances. Unfortunately, state funding is limited in its ability to address certain essential needs such as emergency housing vouchers, food, personal care products, clothes, and transportation, which can be critical to helping our students during difficult times.
The student emergency fund would provide a vital safety net for our students, helping them meet their basic needs and ensuring that they can continue to focus on their education without the burden of financial stress. This fund would be designed to help with urgent and unforeseeable situations, such as a student experiencing a sudden illness, unexpected family crisis, or loss of employment.
This fund will operate through donations from generous individuals like yourself, and all funds raised will be used to provide essential services and products for our students. The emergency fund will be entirely managed by the school administration, ensuring that the process is transparent, fair, and unbiased.
We invite you to join us in this important initiative to support our students. Your contribution will go a long way in helping students who are in critical need of assistance. Your donation can make a real difference in the lives of our students, providing them with the resources and support they need to overcome unforeseen obstacles and achieve their full potential.
Thank you for your consideration, and we hope that you will join us in this critical endeavor.
