Sponsorship Impact

Sponsorship of this event directly supports Gateway's mission to engage, connect, and inspire all students through education to successfully champion our region's competitive workforce and improve their quality of life.

Event Sponsorship will support Gateway's nontraditional students, of which 46% earn income below the poverty threshold level, and one-third of students report making less than $10,000 annually - despite their independent status.

Funds raised through sponsorships of the Gateway to Greatness Awards Luncheon will enable Gateway to continue to offer students the lowest tuition in Kentucky and provide significant financial aid options.

Sponsorship of this event will allow students to have access to state-of-the-art training tools in many area of study to include computerized manufacturing, nursing, welding, electrical technology, and computer/information technology.

Event sponsorship will ensure that Gateway's economic impact to the region continues to grow. In FY 2018-19, Gateway added $89.8 million in income to the Northern Kentucky economy, a value approximately equal to 0.4% of the region's total gross regional product (GRP). Expressed in terms of jobs, Gateway's impact supported 1,451 jobs.
