All of us, regardless of age or wealth, have the ability to make a difference for future Jewish generations.
Our Endowment Fund was created to help protect the long term financial viability of our congregation, with the goal of generating a permanent income source that Congregation B’nai Israel can rely on to meet current and future needs for generations to come. Whether given currenty, over time, or as a bequest upon one’s death, endowed support of CBI ensures a lasting legacy and an enduring impact.
Endowment gifts are invested by CBI at the Jewish Community Foundation of Orange County with oversight by our Endowment Investment Committee to ensure maximum return. It is the goal of the Endowment to maintain, and when possible, grow, the total asset value of the Endowment over time.
In 2016, Congregation B’nai Israel became a partner in the Jewish Community Foundation of Orange County’s Create A Jewish Legacy (CJL) program. CJL is an initiative led by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and the Jewish Community Foundation of Orange County to make legacy giving part of the culture of Orange County. Our goal for this program is to build a strong Congregation B’nai Israel now and in the future through bequests, allowing us to continue to be a meaningful center of spiritual and religious life for Jews living in the area for years to come.
