Donations to MBEF’s Annual Appeal are used to make grants to the Manhattan Beach Unified School District to pay for teachers and educators at our seven schools. The grants, over $6 million annually, amount to approximately 8 percent of the school district’s budget and pay for more than 75 educators. MBEF is a big part of the reason our schools rank third in the state among K-12 schools.

The MBEF Annual Appeal supports great schools today. MBEF’s Endowment Fund supports great schools forever. Both are necessary because of unique challenges surrounding school funding in California.
