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:

  • City grants

  • Private foundation grants

  • Community donations


Our annual operating budget is approximately $100,000, with 10-15% coming from the City of Malibu. The rest comes from private grants and community donations from supporters like you.


Online donations can be made through our donation platform, Kindful, or through PayPal. Please click the button below.
