Each year the MBEF Board of Directors selects a specific program or cause for the Paddle Raise at the Wine Auction. This year, the MBUSD budget cuts have resulted in significant reductions in educators, which will impact class size and reduce MBEF programs for the next academic year.
MBEF stands behind our commitment to strengthen our public schools and will focus on raising additional funding to support educators in our classrooms districtwide at this year’s paddle raise. Together, we can help sustain the quality programs in our schools that make our district one of the best in the state.
We know that many parents, businesses and community members want to know how to help. Please raise your paddle high and DONATE. When this community gets behind a challenge, our potential is unstoppable. Help us make a bigger difference for our schools next year!
