For over 40 years the Center for the Church and the Black Experience (CBE) has empowered and trained persons to be prophetic "leaders of leaders" for the African American religious community and society-at-large. Still, our work is only beginning. The need for CBE as a space of hospitality and of educational support, pastoral consultation, solace, and re-affirmation of the personhood of people of color remains. This can only happen because of the vast network of alums and friends who financially support CBE and its mission.
Your help is needed. Currently Garrett-Evangelical is seeking $1 million to fully endow CBE. In addition, operational expenses (annual fund) for the center continue to increase. We encourage you to consider a gift to help financially secure CBE's future for years to come. To make a gift today, go to www.garrett.edu/giving. Checks are payable to Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary and should be mailed to:
Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
ATTN: Development Office
2121 Sheridan Road
Evanston, IL 60201.
Whether making your gift online or by check, please be sure to designate your gift for CBE.
