Support the Science Fair

As the GATEway Science Fair grows, so do our financial needs. Please consider supporting the Science Fair through a Personal Donation, a Business Sponsorship, or by using GoodSearch/GoodShop.

Business Sponsorships

If you have a business, please consider being one of our business sponsors. Business sponsors are thanked in our printed program and on our Partners and Sponsorship  page of our website. Business sponsors donating $250 or more may also submit their company logo for inclusion on the themed t-shirt each student participant receives. Sponsorships levels are Platinum ($1000 and up), Gold ($500), Silver ($250), and Bronze (under $250). Please use the Business Sponsorship Form  if you are interested in being a business sponsor or know of a business that might be interested.  Contact if you have questions.
