The Redondo Beach Educational Foundation (RBEF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to raise money to supplement state funds for staff and instructional programs in all RBUSD schools. Established in 1991 by a group of concerned parents and community leaders who realized that an excellent school system could not rely on state funding alone, RBEF raises money through its annual investor drive, business partnerships and special events.  We believe the best opportunities come from raising the most well-rounded children, and we support whole child development.

We are - the families of children that will run the cities, the businesses, and the world one day. We are honored to provide them with the best, most creative, and well-rounded education.

We are - the community surrounding our children. We know that when children thrive, the community prospers. 

We are - the organization here to provide vital support to our children, so they can reach their fullest potential. 


After all, while it may be our hopes we are trying to fulfill in our children, it is truly their dreams RBEF seeks to fulfill. 

RBUSD provides our students and staff the ‘value added’ piece to the learning puzzle. With the State’s decline in public education funding, it’s RBEF that has come to our rescue. Without RBEF’s influence and financial resources, RBUSD is a lesser school district.
