Ways to Give
Help Hermosa Beach children reach their full potential today! There are numerous ways for you to contribute to our outstanding schools.
The Annual Appeal is an annual fund raising campaign to raise money for the following school year. The appeal aims to raise funds for our district so that we can maintain the high-quality learning environment, which Hermosa parents expect and demand. Donations are accepted at any time during the year, with a cut off date of June 30. All funds collected by June 30 are then given to the school district for use during the following school year. Donations can be made in one lump sum or through a recurring donation with your credit card. To donate online now, click here.
Do you own a business or service company? The Hang 10 Club card program might be for you. This card provides discounts and/or specials to any donor of the HBEF Annual Appeal of $300 or more. As a business, you will receive advertising through monthly emails to promote your discount or special, inclusion of your logo in mailings and Beach Reporter ads, recognition at and a ticket to our annual Hearts of Hermosa event and more. This club is exclusive to Hermosa Beach businesses or businesses owned by a Hermosa resident. For more information, contact Dawn Crawford.
Hermosa Beach has the great tradition of supporting excellence in education, and now we plan to pass that tradition on from generation to generation. That’s what the Grandparents Club is all about. If there is one thing you have earned, it’s the right to brag a little! All donations to the Grandparents Club go straight to the Annual Appeal, so 100% of your tax-deductible donation helps fund important school programs. Donations can be made through one lump sum or through a recurring donation with your credit card. To donate now, click here.
The HBEF Endowment Fund is a permanent fund that will provide a stable source of funding for our schools once reaching our objective of $2,000,000. Since 1992, our endowment fund has steadily grown through the annual contribution of 20% of HBEF funds raised, direct donations to the endowment and investment gains. As of June 2012 the balance of the fund exceeds $1,000,000. Anyone can give directly to the HBEF’s endowment fund, and by doing so you’re investing in the future of both our schools and our community. Gifts of appreciated marketable securities are also accepted. For more information on the endowment fund and ways to participate please contact: Patrick Goshtigian.
Great schools and great companies go together. Being an HBEF Community Partner associates your business with a well respected non-profit organization and shows parents and the South Bay community that you are doing your part to keep the Hermosa Beach schools great!
Do you love attending HBEF Events? Would you like the opportunity to purchase reserved seating at Hearts of Hermosa? Our Family Sponsorship packages offer reserved seating as well as an invitation to the VIP Pre-Party.
Are you a Real Estate Professional? Then you know first hand that Great Schools and High Property Values go hand in hand! A Real Estate Partnership with the HBEF shows parents, donors, and potential clients that you are helping to keep Hermosa Beach Schools top notch. Donations made through the Commissions for Education program count towards a Real Estate Partnership.
