Our Story

Inspiring students to dream and create their best tomorrow.

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.

Our Impact

Who we are

The SMFC Ed Foundation believes every child deserves the best education possible.

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.

Why the need

State and local funding of education is simply not enough for our children.

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.

What we fund

The SMFC Ed Foundation funds core programming in the Arts, Sports, Music and Wellness.

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.
