Hurricane Harvey Fund

Generous Donor Agrees to Match Donations up to $50K for CBS Harvey Relief Fund


Dear Friends of CBS:

In surveying our students, faculty and staff, we have discovered that while most are physically safe, many have suffered significant losses – homes or apartments flooded, books and computers lost, furnishings ruined…. At least half don’t have insurance to cover their losses.

Students are registered for classes, eager to grow in their knowledge of the Bible – but they are unsure how they will pay for classes, books, computers, etc., when facing economic devastation at home. We want to help students continue their dreams of completing their education, despite Harvey’s damage – but we need your help!

Below is the form you can complete to contribute to the CBS Harvey Relief Fund. This fund will benefit students who have financial need and have suffered significant storm losses. It will benefit faculty and staff who have been impacted by Harvey. And it will help our campus recover from the aftermath of Harvey as we try to meet the special needs for student support, counseling, etc., that have arisen because of the storm.

We are extremely grateful for your generosity and your heart for our students and for our faculty and staff who dedicate their lives to educating and mentoring our students. We are doubly blessed by our long-time, compassionate contributor David Weekley, chairman of David Weekley Homes, who has agreed to match donations up to $50,000 to assist those individuals with the greatest needs.

 Thank you for your support and your prayers!

 With sincere and heartfelt appreciation,

Dr. Bill Blocker,
