San Mateo High School Foundation
Mission & BackgroundSupporting San Mateo High School academics and programs
San Mateo High School Foundation raises funds to support San Mateo High School academics and programs that help prepare students for the success they deserve.
The Foundation is a non-profit organization that reaches out to parents, alumni, community leaders, businesses, and foundations for private philanthropic support to fund key projects identified by the school administration and staff.The Foundation was founded in 2003 as the San Mateo High School Athletics Foundation with the goal of raising private funds to support the completion of the all-weather track and field at San Mateo High School. Completed in October of 2003, the field was named the MaryAnn Johnson Memorial Field in recognition of a gift by her husband Andrew and their sons. Other athletic facility improvements funded by the Foundation include additional fitness equipment in the Fitness Center and the purchase and installation of a Colorado Timing System, scoreboard and starting blocks for the school’s aquatic programs.
With the completion of the new academic buildings in 2005, the Foundation voted to remove the word Athletics from its name to reflect its expanded charter to raise funds to support a broad set of academic and facility related programs and initiatives at San Mateo High School.Please visit us at: San Mateo High School Foundation Website
