Meet the MBEF Board of Directors: Champions for Education

Since MBEF’s founding in 1983, the driving force behind our mission to improve public education in Manhattan Beach schools has been parents and community leaders with a common passion. Initially, with just a few thousand dollars, MBEF leaders focused on enriching existing programs like art and music. Today, with a multi-million dollar annual commitment to our schools, MBEF supports or enhances – in small or large part – nearly every academic pursuit and enrichment opportunity from kindergarten through 12th grade. It is the volunteer and community leadership guiding the Foundation that has made this possible.

MBEF’s board members, all volunteers, are experts in the financial sector, leaders in business management, pioneers in the non-profit sector and, above all, passionate advocates for quality public school education.
