Gateway Mortgage Group Continues Folds of Honor Partnership

JENKS, Okla., November 9, 2017 – Gateway Mortgage Group, founded by Kevin Stitt, is pleased to provide an update on its partnership with Folds of Honor, a non-profit organization that provides educational scholarships to dependents of our fallen and disabled service men and women.

In May, Gateway announced that it would donate $5 to Folds of Honor for every mortgage closed over the next twelve months. To date, the company has donated more than $44,000 from 8,818 closed loans generated by the 150+ Mortgage Centers across the country. In 2016, the company funded more than 15,000 loans in its retail channel and should surpass 20,000 new loans this year. This is expected to generate a total donation of more than $100,000 to Folds of Honor.

“Freedom isn’t free, and more than two million dependents of disabled and fallen soldiers live with this every day,” said Kevin Stitt, Founder and CEO of Gateway Mortgage Group. “We are proud to stand with Folds of Honor as they support the families of our service men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting our freedoms.”

Folds of Honor addresses the financial gap of dependents within our military families by providing educational scholarships to children and spouses of military heroes across the United States. Since 2007, Folds has awarded nearly 16,000 educational scholarships in all fifty states.

“Gateway is founded on the core value of being passionate about strengthening families,” said Mike Goyer, Chief Operating Officer at Gateway. “We are excited to continue our partnership with Folds of Honor and to remain steadfast in our commitment to give back to the families of our fallen heroes, whose sacrifice can never be repaid.”
