Ever notice when it's your birthday, Facebook offers you the option to fundraise to help support the charity of your choice? You actually have the option to host these fundraisers anytime you want. Facebook is planning to match donations made using their fundraising tools on Giving Tuesday. You can have Facebook send us a matching gift by attaching the donate button to a post or by hosting a personal fundraiser of your own. Your Facebook Fundraisers managed to raise over $60,000 last year.


Are you an employee at San Mateo Medical Center? The Medical Center allows you to easily set aside a portion of your paycheck to donate to the Healthcare Heroes program. Healthcare Heroes is a core Foundation program that allows staff to get needed equipment, support the patients they care for, and provide aid to coworkers in need of emergency assistance. Healthcare Heroes is evolving and will soon offer staff the chance to fund new healthcare worker wellness programs in development.


You can help our efforts by making a donation on our Donate page. Thank you for your support and helping our mission to provide the best possible healthcare to all county citizens!
