Over 300 organizations are involved.

All of San Mateo County is getting behind The Big Lift, including leaders from business, government, education, philanthropy and nonprofits. We’ve already accomplished much more together than we could by ourselves.

$30 million in initial funding raised.

In the past two years, we’ve been awarded two major grants based on our plan’s strength and the extraordinary community-wide collaboration behind it. In fact, The Big Lift is one of the nation’s most watched models to give kids a stronger start.
