The San Mateo-Foster City Education Foundation believes every child deserves the best education possible. The Foundation is committed to reaching every child in the San Mateo-Foster City School District. A strong Education Foundation does more than just support the children in its care, it impacts the entire community. We are committed to reaching out to our greater community, raising awareness of the value of supporting local schools to those outside of our immediate parent base.
The San Mateo-Foster City Education Foundation believes every child deserves the best education possible. For too long, State funding has been severely inadequate and has failed to provide our children with essential learning experiences. The Foundation aims to fill this gap by funding a wide variety of education opportunities to help our diverse community of students achieve their full potential.
California funding of education is simply not enough for our children. Our School District is coping with impending deficits brought on by the failure to pass a parcel tax measure and continual budget cuts. The San Mateo-Foster City Education Foundation's goal is to help make up for these shortfalls.
The Education Foundation funds core programming in the Arts, Sports, Music and Wellness. This support is necessary to provide our students with the well rounded education they deserve.
Your investment helps our students realize the benefits of a strong school district. The more we grow, the more we can do for our children!

In addition to individual fundraisers, the San Mateo-Foster City Education Foundation works throughout the year to develop relationships with business partners in the San Mateo and Foster City communities to enhance the educational experiences of students in our district.

2. Gathering, Use and Disclosure of Non-Personally-Identifying Information
SMFCEF collects both Non-Personally-Identifying Information and Personally-Identifying Information from users. “Non–Personally–Identifying Information” is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person or entity. “Personally–Identifying Information,” by contrast, is information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person or entity.
A. Gathering Non-Personally-Identifying Information
(i) Web Browsers
Like most website operators, SMFCEF gathers from users of the Website Non-Personally-Identifying Information of the sort that Web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available. That information includes the user’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, operating system and browser type, and the locations of the Web pages the user views right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Website.
(ii) Web Cookies
A “Web Cookie” is a string of information that a website stores on a user’s computer, and that the user’s browser provides to the website each time the user submits a query to the site. SMFCEF uses Web Cookies to track the pages that users visit during each Website session, both to help SMFCEF improve users’ experiences and to help SMFCEF understand how the Website is being used.
SMFCEF USERS WHO DO NOT WISH TO HAVE WEB COOKIES PLACED ON THEIR COMPUTERS SHOULD SET THEIR BROWSERS TO REFUSE WEB COOKIES BEFORE ACCESSING THE WEBSITE, WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT CERTAIN FEATURES OF THE WEBSITE MAY NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY WITHOUT THE AID OF WEB COOKIES. WEBSITE USERS WHO REFUSE WEB COOKIES ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY RESULTING LOSS OF FUNCTIONALITY.
(iii) Web Beacons
A “Web Beacon” is an object that is embedded in a web page. It is usually invisible to users but allows website operators to check whether a user has viewed a particular web page. Web Beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web Beacon resides.
You may not decline Web Beacons, however, they can be rendered ineffective by declining all cookies or modifying your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis. Third parties are not permitted to use Web Beacons on the Website.
B. Use of Non-Personally-Identifying Information
SMFCEF analyzes Non–Personally–Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website to help SMFCEF better understand how the Website is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, SMFCEF is able to better design the Website to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use.
3. Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personally-Identifying Information
As defined above, Personally-Identifying Information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity. We will only collect Personally-Identifying Information that you knowingly submit to us. We use Personally-Identifying Information only to correspond with you and to inform you of SMFCEF programs. We will not disclose Personally-Identifying Information to third parties unless we obtain your permission to do so at the time we collect it, except as set forth below:
(i) Staff and Third Party Processors
SMFCEF will disclose Personally–Identifying Information to those SMFCEF staff, volunteers, contractors, and suppliers who process Personally–Identifying Information on SMFCEF’s behalf.
(ii) By Law, to Protect Rights and to Comply with SMFCEF Policies
SMFCEF discloses Personally–Identifying Information if: (1) required to do so by law, or in response to a subpoena or court order; (2) SMFCEF believes in its sole discretion that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect against fraud, to protect the property or other rights of SMFCEF, other users, third parties or the public at large; and (3) SMFCEF believes that you have abused the Website by using it to attack other systems or to gain unauthorized access to any other system, to engage in spamming or otherwise to violate applicable laws.
SMFCEF takes reasonable precautions to protect the security of users' information. However, neither people nor security systems are foolproof. Therefore, while we use reasonable efforts to protect your Personally-Identifying Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
5. Collection and Use of Information by Third Parties Not Covered By This Agreement
This policy is effective as of and was last updated on February 19, 2018.
