The Code 30 Foundation was established in 2013 after three active members of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office passed away in on and off-duty related accidents and/or illnesses in less than a year. These sudden deaths revealed the need to provide immediate financial assistance to families for funeral expenses, bills, mortgage payments, etc.
Within days of starting the Code 30 Foundation, a fourth Sheriff’s Office employee was seriously injured and eventually died. The Code 30 Foundation paid for the travel expenses for immediate family members from out of state to be with their loved one before his death. The Code 30 Foundation also contributed to and covered most funeral expenses for the family.
The Code 30 Foundation is not publicly funded and relies completely on the generosity of individuals and businesses to help families in their hour of need. The San Mateo County Code 30 Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization, Tax ID Number: 46-2834289.
