The Redondo Beach Education Foundation was formed in 1991 by a group of parents and community leaders. They realized that an excellent school system could not rely on state funding alone and set out on a mission to elevate the level of education for all Redondo Beach students. With an all-volunteer staff, RBEF was able to increase annual funds raised each year.
Their fund-raising efforts have a deeper impact than many people realize. For the 2015-2016 school year, RBEF gave approximately $850,000 to support the school district in providing invaluable opportunities for students in science, music, arts, sports, math and college preparation. Children are born learners and thrive in a n environment where they can connect with each other, their teachers, and their school communities. RBEF strives to foster these ideals through the programs funded.
