Ways to Give

The generosity of our community provides the fuel for CNT to fulfill its mission. Your contributions ensure that we are here now and in the future. We welcome the opportunity to speak with you about your giving objectives and goals, and how CNT fits into your plans.

Annual Campaign
The Annual Campaign is our primary means of support and comes from people just like you who understand the importance of providing for the spiritual, educational, social and pastoral needs of our community. These funds are used to provide scholarship assistance for membership, religious school and other needs of the community.

CNT's L'dor V'dor Society
What is Legacy Giving?  Legacy Giving is when you include CNT in your financial plans so that a portion of your estate benefits the Synagogue upon your passing. The Synagogue does not receive any money until that time.

I'm not wealthy, are legacy gifts right for me?  Your participation is possible, no matter what your income or estate value.  A legacy gift has no impact on your current finances or lifestyle. The gift is effective upon the distribution of your estate.

How do I become part of the CNT L'dor V'dor Society?  Leaving a legacy is simple, and there are many options. Consider naming CNT as a beneficiary for a set figure or percentage of your will, life insurance policy, IRA or pension funds, cash or assets.  Once you do, you will be a member of the Congregation Ner Tamid L'dor V'dor Society,  a special group that is celebrated and publicly acknowledged for their lasting commitment to CNT. 

If you are interested in making a legacy gift, or have already included CNT in your plans, please call us at 310-377-6986 to discuss your options.

Endowment Funds are for those that want to make a gift that will last forever and are essential in supporting our community’s sacred operations each year.  They are a collection of different principal contributions from committed CNT families and charitable foundations.  If you are interested in making a donation to our endowment fund please call us at 310-377-6986 to discuss.

Tree of Life  &  Sam's Tree
Once upon a time
There was a little tree.
They designed it and installed it in 1983.

We wanted one for our little children
Before their B’nai Mitzvah days
Recalling all their special moments
Especially their birthdays.

And we wanted one for us grown-ups
To remember those people and moments of our days
For which we’re thankful and grateful
Or celebrate in many ways.

So for your next special moment
Or a child dear in your heart
Let them select a special leaf
And forever become a part

Of “The Tree of Life” at CNT
A moment captured in time
Don’t forget to visit “The Tree of Life”
When you come to the synagogue next time!

Both beautiful stained glass trees are located within the sanctuary.   Inscribe your loved ones’ and your friends’ special moments on the “Trees of Life” and enjoy them when you come to synagogue.

Tree of Life:  $360 per leaf
Sam's Tree:  $180 per leaf

Call the office at 310-377-6986 to order.
