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 ambassador 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 experience and skills – such as communications, development, education, finance and marketing. If you are interested in learning more about our Board, please contact Hilary Mahan, MBEF Executive Director.

Volunteer at the Manhattan Wine Auction in June.

The Manhattan Wine Auction is our only fundraising event all year and requires hundreds of hours of volunteer power, for jobs big and small. We’ll take any minute you can offer!  Contact Kristi Buckley 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 annual sold-out event.
