Foundation Focus

The Jackie Speier Foundation for Women and Children is addressing poverty, lack of housing and childcare, and domestic violence.

In addition to more traditional foundation activities, The Jackie Speier Foundation functions as an innovation incubator with the Baby Bonus Program as its initial project. This is a “moon shot” challenge in attempting to solve some of the most difficult human issues we have in San Mateo County.

San Mateo County’s challenge is connecting our tremendous local creativity and wealth with our substantial local needs, hidden in plain sight. Solutions, if successful, can be introduced across the nation and on a global level. Solving problems in our own backyard can benefit not only San Mateo County but the world.

Jackie Speier

After 40 years of public service, Jackie Speier has retired from Congress to come home and revitalize the fight against poverty in San Mateo County. Jackie will bring together the leaders of San Mateo to focus and coordinate their efforts to eliminate poverty.


San Mateo is one of the wealthiest districts in the country with one of the highest rates of child poverty. Jackie intends to raise the awareness and the needed funding to change this.
