Thank You for Giving

The oldest and largest Jewish institution in Santa Barbara, CBB plays a leading and unique role in the Jewish experience of our community. Dedicated to fostering a warm, inclusive, and vibrant Jewish life, our doors remain open to all those seeking a home for Jewish education, culture, and values.

There are many ways to contribute to our wonderful community, and each gift is meaningful. From all of us at CBB – from tots to teens, Boomers to elders – thank you for your generosity and support. 

Membership Commitments

Congregation B’nai B’rith is committed to an open membership structure which allows everyone to participate in our communal Jewish life regardless of financial situation. Membership commitments form the heart of CBB’s financial operations and we ask every member to give what they can. Each donation is important, and we thank you for your support.

Gifts to the Endowment 

The income generated by our endowment supports CBB’s programs and bridge the gap between what our members contribute and our annual operating and reserve needs. There are two ways to support the endowment.
Through the Children of the Covenant Campaign 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. Click Here to Learn more about the Children of the Covenant program.

We also deeply appreciate in-lifetime gifts to the CBB Endowment. Click Here and select “Legacy Fund (CBB Endowment)” from the drop-down list of special funds to make your gift to the CBB endowment now.
