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 "Backpack For Kids" program is in full swing!

Help us by making a monetary donation to help a low income/Foster Youth receive a brand new backpack with school supplies.

  • A $15-$20 donation can help purchase all school supplies for 1 backpack

Drop off your new unused items

  • The Children's Fund will accept any brand new backpacks or school supplies during regular business hours M-F 8am-5pm at 1 Davis Drive, Belmont CA 94002

We especially need small backpacks for grades Pre-K-1st, and backpacks for High School aged children.


All donations are 100% Tax deductible. Email or call us for additional information
