Give to CBST

Give. Honor. Remember. Celebrate. Thank you!

Giving to CBST is one of the most powerful things you can do for your community. Your membership fuels our work. Your extra gifts of tzedakah keep our community vibrant, joyful, spiritual and proud.

Contribute now to support the High Holy Days at CBST! Your generosity keeps us open for all.

Support your LGBTQ+ synagogue in one of these meaningful ways:

Financial Impact

Annual Appeal
Your donations to our 2022 Annual Appeal above and beyond membership help us significantly each year.

Open Door
We never charge for services. Your gift to our Open Door fund keeps CBST open to all who wish to worship in our community.

Tributes and Life Cycles

Chai Cards
Help your dear ones celebrate or commemorate. We will send a note via email that you have made a gift in honor or in memory of someone you love.

Shabbat Sponsorships
Each week, we invite members and friends to sponsor our livestream services and share joys and remembrances. Gifts at all levels are welcome, and we read the names and messages of those marking special occasions and poignant moments, at a minimum of $50 (other giving levels are indicated). Tributes (up to 30 words) must be received by noon on the Thursday prior to your selected service, in order to be announced at the service and/or included in our Shabbat Program. 

Legacy Giving
We invite you to consider CBST in your estate plans. Members of our Ner Tamid Legacy Giving Society wish to leave a legacy of equality and pride.

Yortzeit Interactive Memorial
Our beautiful new electronic memorial will debut in fall 2021.
