We love nothing more than to be in community with our school district students, their families, friends & neighbors. Our annual events keep us connected, promote our mission and vision & foster a spirit of mutuality with the people of San Mateo, Foster City and beyond.
We kickoff every school year with our Annual Giving Campaign, asking families in our district to pledge $250.00 to support our mission & vision. Usually in Fall, we host a Gala & Auction and invite the larger community to support that effort as well as participate in it. Our annual Readathon has become a favorite way for students & teachers (and librarians!) alike, to beat the Winter blues!
Our direct donation campaign is open all year long and benefits all District students.
SMFCEF asks families to consider a tax-deductible donation of $250.
Every dollar counts and will make a difference.
Consider these costs as you donate:
$400 for one new Chromebook
$300 for one musical instrument
$100 for ten Culturally Relevant classroom books
$50 for one year of music for a student
Donate any amount, at anytime, all year long!
Sustaining members may choose to donate $25 per month
