We strive to ensure that every child has access to sports in school. This is traditionally the most economical way to get exposure to sports and strengthen those relationships and learn the value of teamwork.

I wanted to express my gratitude on behalf of the SMFCEdFund for your generous contributions over the years!

Thanks to your generosity we were able to support the request to fund new uniforms for (San Mateo Foster City School District) after school sports.
Thank you! The uniforms will be worn with pride!

We supported the Inaugural Trip for San Mateo Youth Softball Association (SMYSA) Softball to go to our Sister City, Japan, to play and learn about the culture.

In 2020, we introduced and paid for a series of coaching and mentorship program for the San Mateo/Foster City School District. This was created to increase the positive atmosphere in the middle schools in San Mateo and Foster City. The lessons were developed by Joe Thomas and were considered a success and a great addition to their sports program.

We have provided grants to support equipment and uniforms for Four 5th – 8th grade schools.

Implemented a policy and procedure to track and account for all uniforms and equipment 

Chance to Excel worked with “Joe Thomas Coaching Legacy” to develop a program to empower parents to create a supportive parent and student athlete relationship.
