Gateway Foundation Crew Membership:

Some people know a good thing when they see it and invest accordingly. Becoming a lifetime member of The Gateway Foundation is your way of telling the world “Let’s build it!” In return for their support, Gateway Lifetime Members get all the benefits the Annual members do plus they will receive 50% off all Gateway event entry fees and automatic entry into the 1k , 10k, 100k programs.

All Gateway Lifetime Membership Numbers are even numbers.

First Come, First Serve:

In addition to all the benefits listed in our Annual membership level, The Gateway Foundation will give out lottery tickets to reward those who have become Lifetime Members in the early years of our program

10K Lottery:
Every year, the first 10,000 Gateway Lifetime Members will have the opportunity to buy lottery tickets (just for them) for a chance to visit The Gateway. The winner gets a trip to the Gateway. This includes the Gateway 1K.

1M and 10M Lottery?

When the membership numbers get high enough we will start these programs too.

A New Direction:

The Gateway will be built by the work of its members pushing their elected officials to let The Gateway Lottery run, to generate the necessary funds to build this space station.  This political action is essential, not just for The Gateway but for the support it will provide to the emerging industries that will arise to help build it. We will organize people who want to see humankind expand into space, giving us all a new direction: Up.


“Apollo in 1969. Shuttle in 1981. Nothing in 2011. Our space program would look awesome to anyone living backwards through time.”
– Neil deGrasse Tyson

Membership Fees:

Crew memberships are a onetime $399.95 and are refundable for the member’s lifetime. All membership fees paid to the Gateway Foundation are redeemable for lottery trip tickets one year after the Gateway Foundation Lottery is operational.

Membership Roles:

Get two friends to join our crew you get 50% off your membership! The Gateway membership must grow to ensure this key piece of infrastructure is constructed. Your first role as a member is to discuss this revolution in space travel, with friends, family, classmates, and coworkers whom you believe would like to join us in this effort. By joining us, they will have the chance to visit orbital space once The Gateway Lottery begins. Once their membership is confirmed, we will issue you a 50% refund on your annul membership or 25% off your life membership.

Who Will Join, Design, Build, and Go?

The Gateway Foundation will be made-up of people from all over the world who believe that humankind needs to expand throughout our solar system to survive. The competition for resources on Earth has led to many wars and with weapons of mass destruction proliferating at ever increasing numbers we must realize that there are far more of these resources above our head than there are below our feet.

We must start thinking of ways to expand outward in our solar system and stop thinking of making more nuclear weapons to point at our neighbors. We are One race, The human race. Nothing will bring humankind together like building The Gateway and making our reach for the stars. The lottery will allow us to use our money to build the Gateway, the Internet will connect us to people everywhere who share this ambition and want to be a part of the next big thing, and, who want a chance to go.
