Fair Share Contribution
We believe everyone should be invested in helping build community, but money should never prevent anyone from feeling part of that community. A Fair Share Contribution ensures that everyone's financial obligation is relative to their means. Under our Fair Share Contribution system, every family and individual is asked to contribute a minimum of 2% of their annual household income. This is a pledge level that members set for themseves based on their capacity to support CBI.
Part-time Residents and Students
If you divide your time between the Asheville area and somewhere else, and you are away from Asheville for more than 6 months, you are welcome to adjust your Fair Share to reflect the time you are away. For full-time students, we ask for a reduced dues contribution of a minimum of $36 per year.
For some, the minimum suggested 2% contribution may be too great. In those cases, individuals or families may contribute their time and energy in lieu of, or to supplement, a financial contribution. If you are interested in this option, check the box "yes" below and a member of our Financial Assistance Committe will contact you. All discussions are totally confidential.
The table below is intended to help you calculate your minimum suggested dues.
