Founded in 1983 by concerned parents and community leaders of the South Bay, the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation raises money to improve Manhattan Beach public schools.
It pays for teachers and other educators whose positions the state of California does not fund or require but our parents and educators consider necessary for a quality education.MBEF’s role has evolved from providing limited educational enhancements, at a cost of tens of thousands of dollars, to funding critical educational programs at a cost of more than $4 million annually. MBEF currently pays for classroom teachers so our children can enjoy reasonable class sizes, librarians at each of our seven schools, science and reading enrichment, computer teachers, music teachers and assistants, educational advisors, college and career counselors, and health assistants among other programs. MBEF’s board of directors consists of parents, community members, and PTA presidents from each of the district’s seven schools.
