What We Fund
San Mateo-Foster City Education Foundation Logo

The San Mateo-Foster City Education Foundation funds core programming in Literacy, Arts, Sports, Music, Technology and Wellness.

We work throughout the year to develop relationships with community & business partners in San Mateo and Foster City to enhance the educational experiences of students in our district.

Your financial contributions allow the Foundation to bring equity to our schools & help our diverse community of students achieve their full potential by providing them with the well rounded education they deserve.

Bridging the digital divide

Granting sources and donations of all amounts from many individuals helped us provide chromebooks and hotspots to students during distance learning.

Using Measure K funding, we also granted Chromebooks and carts to each of our schools, supporting the Next Generation Science Standard (NGSS) implementation.

Inspiring students

We are proud to have furnished glassware for Middle School science labs and provided funding for and helped set up a "Makerspace" at one of our elementary schools.

We are also excited to have a Science Teacher on Special Assignment (ToSA) working in our district, coordinating and leading teacher professional learning.
