Welcome to Children’s Fund

The Children’s Fund program, founded in 1973, as a grassroots effort by social workers to assist foster and low-income children in San Mateo County and provide them with goods and service that are not available through public funds. The Children’s Fund benefits low-income and foster children and teens, newborn to age 18, who reside in San Mateo County. Every year over 4,500 children and youth receive resources from our program.





Our 2019 "Backpack For Kids" program has closed for the season. What a great success it was this year. Thank you to all who donated!

We are currently cleaning up our warehouse getting ready for our next drive, Halloween "Costumes for Kids."

This program distributes new or gently used Halloween costumes to low-income and foster youth in San Mateo County. We rely on community donations to serve the children and are so gratefulfor your help. Please check back for more information as to how you can help out with the drive!

A little ghost, angel, or superhero will appreciate your generosity!
