Who We Are

The San Mateo County Law Library Foundation was created in 2016 to assist and promote the Law Library through outreach, fundraising, advocacy and volunteerism.

We are a 501(c)(3) organization that can accept donations on behalf of the San Mateo Law Library. Donations will help offset the Law Library's current financial crisis and assist all people, whether members of the general public or local attorneys, in their efforts to use the legal system effectively.
