How can I give to CBRI?

Become a member of the CBRI Associates

The CBRI Associates is a voluntary organization that affords opportunities for public service, networking, and philanthropy through affiliation with the CBR Institute. Associates represent many backgrounds, including business, law, technology, and the arts. They share a common mission to advance health, promote biomedical research, and develop professional and social ties while finding objectives for their philanthropy through CBRI. Donors who give $100 or more are invited to join the CBRI Associates.

Gifts of cash

Gifts of cash are the most direct way to support the mission and good works of CBRI. Donors can make cash gifts through personal checks, on-line giving, memorial gifts, and gifts in recognition of special people. In addition, employees of CBRI can support our contributions to human health through payroll deduction.

In addition, donors may contribute to CBRI by writing a personal check made payable to CBR Institute and mailing it to the following address:

CBRI Associates Fund
c/o Kim Lubin
800 Huntington Avenue
Boston, MA 02115

On-line Giving via our secure server is a very convenient way to give to the Institute.

Make a memorial gift. Memorial gifts enable donors to express enduring love and respect for family members, friends, and colleagues through a commemorative donation to the Institute.

Recognize an important person in your life.

Payroll deduction (for CBRI employees only) is a convenient means to support the Institute, make a memorial gift, or recognize important people in your life.

Gifts of securities

Transfer of securities. When you transfer securities to the CBR Institute, you can deduct the full fair market value of appreciated securities and avoid any tax on the capital gain. Gifts of securities are deductible from federal income tax up to 20 percent of the donor’s adjusted gross income, with a five-year carry-over provision. Please click on the link above for specific instructions on transferring gifts of securities to CBRI.

Planned gifts

Make a planned gift. Planned gifts are among the most valuable and meaningful acts of philanthropy for you — the donor — and the CBR Institute. They offer donors the means to make sizeable gifts of personal assets in a tax beneficial manner while enabling them to enjoy those assets throughout their life and that of loved ones.

Events and activities

Donors and friends of the Institute can give through participation in CBRI’s various educational and awareness-building events. Please check our calendar.
