When you give to 4Cs, you strengthen our community. As the county’s leading resource and referral service for children and families, you are investing in the daily lives and healthy development of the children of San Mateo County. 4Cs uses your gift to make meaningful, enduring impact.

Every dollar makes a difference. Together we are creating a community where children have access to quality care and education. We welcome your support for a specific program or you may wish to make a general contribution in honor of our 40 years in developing and implementing programs benefiting children, families and the child care field. Every dollar makes a difference:

  • $40 can buy materials for our child care professionals’ lending library
  • $400 can provide an enhanced referral and child care placement for a child with special needs
  • $1,000 can help cover the cost of one month of child care for a low-income, working family
