Our community has supported the county's only public hospital and its patients with $1.7 million in donations. Our donors and sponsors have helped fund thousands of food boxes, baby starter kits, school backpacks, medical equipment, accessibility gear, and mental health support.


Thank you so much for helping us make an impact. This has been our best year end appeal campaign yet! With generous donations from our giving family, both new donors and existing supporters, we raised $262,000 for healthcare programs and welfare assistance for our community.

In October 2022 the Foundation brought back Taste of the County, a food & entertainment festival benefitting healthcare. Our goal was to create an event to celebrate the resilience of health workers, county citizens, and merchants through these unique times; something that the community could enjoy while bringing awareness to medical programs and vital county needs. Attended by over 500 people, families, business owners, community and government leaders, and foodies from all over the Bay Area enjoyed food samples and drink pours from close to 40 local restaurants. We raised over $65,000 and 100% of event proceeds went directly to support our programs.

Every year SMCHF hosts its Annual Golf Tournament which is attended by close to 200 people. Getting together for a day on the green, attendees help raise funds for the critical needs of the hospital. Each player gets a round of golf, a gift and amenities bag, meals, and prizes in our on-course games including the $10,000 Putt and Million Dollar Shot. Past tournaments brought in a chance to win cash and a new BMW. Other players took home an OLED 55” TV, Oculus VR headset, spa experiences, bottles of wine, and more. It’s just one fantastic reason to come out and play for a great cause!

Hospital Week is a nationwide event that highlights the tireless work of doctors, nurses, social workers and other clinical staff. The Foundation has collaborated with San Mateo Medical Center to thank these heroes each year.


Last year, we were invited by the Medical Center to co-host Hospital Week: Back to the Future - Renew, Refresh, Reconnect, an unforgettable week-long celebration at five different clinic sites. The festivities included gift bags with a carnival at each location, and hospital and clinic staff were treated to a photo-op with a replica of the Back to the Future DeLorean time machine. Everyone enjoyed a day of fun, good food and a great playlist of 80s hits!

For over 30 years, San Mateo Medical Center and the Golden Gate Harley Owners Group have had a tradition of hosting an Annual Toy Drive. We are thrilled to support and be part of this heartwarming event, which gifts toys and a holiday experience to our pediatric patients and their families. Harley bikes ride in like Santa's sleigh bringing holiday cheer. This year, the Foundation set up a mini carnival and toys were donated by the GG HOGs, SMMC Volunteers and members of the community.

We are overjoyed to partner with fellow 501(c)(3) Help a Mother Out to give free ELO Diapers to families in need. 95,000 diapers were given to over 400 San Mateo County families. We are so thankful to all the volunteers from the Supporter Family, HAMO, and the community that showed up to help county mothers.

On December 9, 2021, San Mateo Medical Center held a grand opening of their Physical Rehabilitation Gym, funded by San Mateo County Health Foundation through donations from the community. The event was attended by SMCHF donors, board members, and hospital staff. The center offers patients a variety of rehabilitation services with a goal of bringing people to their highest level of practical functioning through efficient delivery of evidenced based interdisciplinary practices. The new space features wide walkways and a better equipped wheelchair accessible audiology room. SMCHF is proud that we could play a part in opening this brand-new gym.
