Building Fund Pledge

According to CBI policy, each membership unit is expected to make a one-time contribution of $1800 to the Building Fund. Building Fund Pledge payment is an obligation of every member, regardless of the start date of their membership. This money is used to make payments against the existing mortgage, cover repairs and maintenance, and as a base for future property purchases. Members usually pay $360 per year over five years. Note: Out of town and student members are exempted from paying the Building Fund Pledge. For others, please talk with the Executive Director if adding this to dues will create a hardship.
