MBEF is a volunteer, parent-led organization.   There are many ways help support excellent schools in Manhattan Beach beyond making a monetary donation.   Get involved.

There are MBEF Site Teams at each of our seven schools.  There is much work to do throughout the school year.  Feel free to contact your site representative to offer your assistance.  You could either click on their name for their email or call us at (310) 303-3342.

Join our Board of Directors.

Our board is made up of MBUSD parents and non-parents with skills relevant to running a 501(c)(3) non-profit fundraising organization.  We need people with a variety of skills – such as marketing, sales, investment and finance skills.  If you would like to join our board, please contact Susan Warshaw, MBEF Executive Director.

Volunteer at the Manhattan Wine Auction in June.

The Manhattan Wine Auction is our only fundraising event all year and its a “must attend” event.  This event requires hundreds of hours of parent power, for jobs big and small. We’ll take any minute you can offer!  Contact Margo Thole to sign up.  (Since the event is a fundraiser, all of our volunteers are asked to purchase a ticket if they wish to attend this yearly sold-out event.)
