The success of MBEF relies on a strong volunteer support system. There are many ways become involved in the effort to strengthen our Manhattan Beach schools.

Annual Appeal

Each year, MBEF Site Ambassadors help to communicate the importance of MBEF at their campus. To help support the effort, please contact the Ambassador from your school below or call the MBEF office at (310) 303-3342.
