Gateway Foundation strives to enrich St. Louis life and culture by supporting efforts to acquire, create and improve tangible and durable art and urban design.


The focus of Gateway Foundation is to foster and support cultural and artistic activities and, on occasion, related to educational activities devoted to improving the quality of life in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area. The Foundation gives priority to projects involving the acquisition, creation or improvement of items of a durable, physical nature. Requests for general operating expenses or endowment normally will not be considered.
