Upcoming Events

Past Events


Hall of Fame Induction & Reception

The Hall of Fame Induction & Reception, which debuted in 1997,  is the Gateway Community College Foundation’s major source of scholarship assistance for deserving, qualified students.

Each year, outstanding corporate and community leaders and distinguished alumni are inducted into the Hall of Fame in recognition of their significant achievements and commitment to the mission of Gateway Community College. A Gateway student and scholarship recipient is also called upon to share a personal story of the impact of Gateway's—and the Foundation's—support on their life. 


Chefs Of Our Kitchen (C.O.O.K.)

When it comes to watching gourmet chefs whip up mouth-watering cuisine, everyone wants a front-row seat to ask questions and taste the delicious food prepared with such style and panache!

That’s the premise behind Gateway Community College Foundation’s innovative and popular C.O.O.K. series of cuilnary presentations by well-known food authorities—from Greater New Haven and renowned regional, national, and international culinary experts.
