Endowment Donors

The MBEF Endowment

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.  Proceeds from the MBEF Endowment Fund may be used now that the fund’s assets have reached $10 million.  We’d like to thank the following donors who helped get us there.
