Together, we are building the CBB endowment to $20 million through legacy gifts that are pledged today and received over the next 20+ years.

The CBB endowment provides a firm, long-term financial foundation for our congregation. The income generated by our endowment supports CBB’s programs and bridges the gap between what our members contribute and our annual operating and reserve needs. Our hope is that everyone who possibly can, will leave a legacy gift.

If you have already provided for CBB in your estate plan, please let us know so we can acknowledge you and include you in the Children of the Covenant.

“How is it that so many ancient peoples have come and gone and we Jews are still here? It is only because we have always believed in the future, maintained our hope in the future, and prepared for the future.”

- Rabbi Stephen E. Cohen

How Can I Join Children of the Covenant?

You may include CBB in your estate plan, name CBB as beneficiary of an IRA or life insurance, leave property to CBB, or establish a gift annuity. If you have not already set up a will or trust, we urge you to do so in order to provide for your family and yourself. We can give you the names of attorneys with whom you may consult without cost or obligation.

There are many ways you can support the CBB Endowment, including in-lifetime giving. Please contact Elizabeth Gaynes, Executive Director for more information or to join Children of the Covenant: / (805) 964-7869 x111.

Membership acknowledgment includes a personalized ketubah; recognition at yearly CBB Gala, in Voices magazine, website name listing, and future physical donor wall; and a special COTC members aliyah during High Holy Day services.
