Gateway Fund 1


The Gateway Fund is a community-based organization that was established in 2002 to support educational excellence by providing grants in perpetuity to benefit the students of North Adams Public Schools.  The Fund is supported by donations from the community.



The Gateway Fund community advisory committee annually reviews proposals submitted by community members including, students, teachers, administrators and parents.  Awards are granted to projects that seek to

enhance and expand the learning environment.


Types of programs that might be

supported include:

  • Visits by authors, artists, or speakers
  • Purchase of materials for special projects
  • Field trips
  • Student-initiated projects


The Gateway Fund is funded through

private resources and uses those

resources to make grants in perpetuity

for North Adams Public Schools.


The Fund is an endowment of the

Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation.


 Gateway Fund 4



The Gateway Fund is an endowment and as such can spend up to 5% of its resources annually. This allows contributions and investment returns to expand the Fund and award grants forever.


You can effect a change for the better that will last forever in the North Adams Public Schools by making a tax-deductible contribution to the Gateway Fund. Every contribution helps move the District forward onto the cutting edge of public education.


Cash, stock, real estate, and mutual funds can be contributed. Every contribution helps. Gifts may be anonymous. Planned giving options also provide a  good way to support The Gateway Fund.  For more information please contact: Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation at (413) 528-8039(413) 528-8039(413) 528-8039(413) 528-8039.
