Like almost all non-profit organizations, the end of the calendar year is very important for us financially. We simply could not do the work we do without your generous contributions. Please know how grateful we are for each and every gift, and even more for each and every person behind those gifts.

This has been a terrific year. Here are a just a few highlights:

In 2018 our Paul Ramsey Institute Consultations will meet for in-depth discussions of carefully selected readings in January, March, and September. In conjunction with the March Consultation, we will host the Paul Ramsey Award Dinner (Saturday, March 24, 2018 — save that date!), and present the 2018 Paul Ramsey Award for Excellence in Bioethics to Farr A. Curlin, M.D. of Duke University. We are planning to be a part of the 62nd Commission on the Status of Women at the United Nations in New York. We will finish, market, and distribute our film on Kelly Martinez, and much, much more.

Let us again say thank you for your continued generous and faithful support. Please do remember us in your year-end giving. May we humbly ask that you consider doubling your end of year gift to the CBC? This will provide a solid foundation from which to work as we begin the new year.

For our shared human future,

Jennifer Lahl and Matthew Eppinette

PS: We run a lean operation here at the CBC. Your gifts will make a direct, positive impact on individuals as well as on our shared human future. Please give as generously as you are able.

You make our work possible. You keep us hopeful!
