Redondo Beach Education Foundation
The Redondo Beach Education Foundation was formed in 1991 by a group of concerned 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 lift the level of education for all Redondo Beach students. With an all-volunteer staff, RBEF was able to increase annual funds raised each year. Poised to reach the million dollar mark in 2012, RBEF brought on its first staff member, Dr. Danielle Allphin, as a part-time Executive Director to assist the volunteer board and maximize the organization’s growth and potential. RBEF continues to Raise the Tide with community-based fundraising that brings much-needed financial support to each Redondo Beach public school.
Our fund-raising efforts have a deeper impact than many people realize. For the 2013-2014 school year, we will be giving approximately $700,000 to support the district in providing invaluable opportunities for students in science, music, arts, counseling, and college preparation. These funds will sustain programs implemented in the 2011-12 and 2012-13 school years and will bring additional programs and teachers to raise the tide for Redondo Beach students.
Children are born learners and thrive in an environment where they can connect with each other, their teachers, and their school communities and schools have the right resources for teaching and learning. We want to continue our mission but need your support more than ever before. Please help us by donating and joining RBEF’s efforts to raise the tide for all children in RBUSD.
