Donate Now

At CBI, financial support is an expression of gratitude for the value we receive, not a requirement for membership.

CBI is primarily supported through voluntary gifts of the heart. They come in all sizes – and for all the right reasons. If you have found value here- whether during a service, class, program or in an interaction – please consider taking advantage of the many ways you can help.

Making donations to CBI is easier than ever

Each year, CBI relies on private contributions to cover about 60-70% of our expenses. If you have found value – in a program, service or personal interaction at CBI – please consider supporting us. You can make a general donation or choose to support a specific program. For more information about the specific programs, check out the list of donor-directed funds below.

Our mailing address is:

Congregation Beth Israel
229 Murdock Avenue
Asheville, NC 28804
