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.

Our mailing address is Congregation Beth Israel, 229 Murdock Ave. Asheville, NC 28804

Support CBI's Annual Development Events

CBI has three "signature" events during the year that we rely on to raise operating funds for the community.  Some have presently been impacted by or postponed due to COVID-19.  Your support - either financial or volunteer service - helps to ensure continued programming and services at CBI.
