In partnership with San Mateo County Parks, the Foundation raises funds to support projects, programs, and volunteers to benefit parks and visitors.

We are committed to conserving and improving the quality of our County Parks for current and future generations to enjoy. Since its founding in 1998, the Foundation and its members have provided millions of dollars in support for our parks.
