MBEF is a nonprofit organization solely dedicated to supporting our top-ranked Manhattan Beach public schools. Last year, MBEF granted a total of $5 million for small classes, science, technology, counseling, writing, reading and so much more.  MBEF grants funds for the salaries of 72 educators – an amount which equals roughly 10% of our School District’s budget.
