About Us

Our Mission

To improve social and economic conditions across Galveston Island by providing leadership and promoting collaboration among neighborhoods and others.

GAIN was founded on the principle that an economically strong, livable community begins with vital neighborhoods. GAIN is an independent collaboration reflecting the island’s diversity of income, ethnicity, neighborhood architectural design, and lifestyle.

GAIN’s objective is to work together to identify and address issues that affect all or several neighborhoods and to work together with other civic groups, government officials, agencies, employers, and local institutions to implement change
GAIN, first incorporated in 1998, is a non-profit 501 (c) 4 corporation.
