We Need Your Help!

The Children's Fund program depends on generous contributions from the community to provide every one of the goods and services that the 4,500 children recieve each year.  

The San Mateo County Human Services Agency funds all the operational and administrative costs associated with the program. Therefore 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to serving the children. Every donation makes a huge difference to the children we serve. Contributions are tax-deductible. Our tax ID # is 94-6000532.
