By including the San Mateo Public Library Foundation as a beneficiary in your will or trust, retirement asset, life insurance, or by making a current gift to the Legacy Fund, you can ensure the library will be there for generations to come.

Legacy Fund Donors of $500 or more will be listed on a permanent plaque in the Library. Gifts may be made by check, credit card or online by using the special donate button on this page.  Please send an email to indicating your preference for recognition on the plaque. Is there a special reader, family member or friend that you would like to honor?  Please let us know.
