What is an “In-Kind” Donation?

An in-kind donation is a form of charitable giving in which, instead of giving money to fund a needed good or service, the good or service itself is given.

There are many ways to show support. Donating items, from technology, to supplies, to well-loved but out-of-use objects, is one of them. Gateway happily accepts a selection of in-kind donations. Gateway artists re-imagine everyday objects, transforming them into new and unique works of art.
