The Malibu Community Labor Exchange exists on the generous support of many individuals, groups & corporations who believe in the work we do. There are several ways to suppor the Labor Exchange, described below. To learn more about any of these, please contact us.

Donate Money

The MCLE has three basic sources of revenue:

Our annual operating budget is approximately $75,000 per year, part of which comes from the City of Malibu. The rest comes from private foundation grants and community donations from supporters like you.

Donate Goods

The MCLE welcomes donations of slightly used seasonal clothing, toys for children, school supplies, non-perishable food items and prepared sack lunches for our workers.


If you have things you think we could use, please get in touch with us or stop by our site.

Volunteer Your Time & Skills

MCLE welcomes volunteers from the community. We frequently have interns from Pepperdine University who come to help and learn from our friendly nonprofit. We also have local volunteers who share their skills and knowledge to teach English and computer skills to help the workers improve their ability to communicate and seek work.
