for kids! Annual Campaign is the backbone of the foundation’s giving programs. We kick off the campaign in August with our direct appeal. February is phone-bank month – parents, teachers, school and district staff and administrators spend two evenings calling families to remind them of our campaign and encourage them to make a meaningful gift
Every child benefits from the Annual Campaign. Even a small gift has a big impact. We encourage gifts of any amount since high participation levels in the Annual Campaign can help for kids! attain corporate and foundation grants.
San Mateo-Foster City School District receives one of the lowest per pupil funding in San Mateo county. Help bridge the gap between funding from Sacramento and what it really costs to provide a quality academic experience to all our children – give to the Annual Campaign today.
You can make a credit card donation via the web at our giving online page.

Tribute gifts are a wonderful way of honoring or memorializing a family member, friend, colleague, or loved one, while at the same time supporting for kids!. You may designate a commemorative gift by making the appropriate notation on the remittance envelope. Your gift will be acknowledged promptly with a note to the individual or family in whose name the gift was made.
Corporate matching donations are a great way to increase the impact of your contribution to for kids!
Through a matching gift, donors can instantly double or even triple their contribution and in turn extend their reach to support even more students and teachers in the San Mateo-Foster City public schools. If you are interested in making a matching donation to for kids!, here are five easy steps:
Contact your Human Resources department or corporate foundation to make sure your company has a matching donation policy. There is usually a limit to the amount your employer will match each year (between $500–$3,000 is typical).
If your company has a matching donation program, inquire as to what paperwork is required to make a matching donation.
Fill out the appropriate form(s) provided by your employer and submit them to your HR department or corporate foundation for processing.
Contact for kids! if you need assistance filling out the appropriate forms.
