Endowment Donors

A gift to the MBEF Endowment Fund is an investment in every current Manhattan Beach student as well as those fifty years from now. The principal gift is maintained in perpetuity while a portion of the return on its investment supports annual grants to Manhattan Beach schools. We’d like to thank the following supporters who are creating a lasting legacy that will keep Manhattan Beach schools great, now and forever.
