Please consider a donation to one or both of the following funds:
Second Century Fund: The Second Century Fund was established in 1984 to provide a perpetual source of funds to supplement CBI’s operating budget. The Fund operates as an endowment, and principal of the Fund is held in trust governed by a Board of Trustees. Proceeds from the Fund are made available annually to the Congregation, and this contribution has historically represented approximately 6 percent of CBI’s annual budget. The Fund principal is invested for sustainable income and growth, so a gift to the Second Century Fund is a gift that keeps on giving.
Continued growth of the Second Century Fund is integral to the fiscal health of the Congregation. Donors who make cumulative gifts of $15,000 or more to this fund are recognized as “Second Century Fund Fellows.” The Second Century Fund Fellowship was established in memory of J. Marymor, who served as President of CBI in 1984 and was instrumental in founding the Second Century Fund.
Preschool Endowment Fund: The Preschool Endowment Fund Trust (PEFT) was established in 2005 to ensure continued excellence in Jewish early childhood education at CBI. The fund was established in recognition of the high quality of the teachers of CBI Preschool with a founding donation by Rachel and Kevin Skadron in memory of Linda Berez, mother of Rachel and grandmother of Miriam and Micah. Proceeds of the PEFT support the Preschool and enhance our ability to retain and recruit experienced Jewish early childhood educators to CBI. We look to donors and the community to join together with teachers and families of young children to provide an excellent Jewish preschool education that is viable and sustainable.
