CONTRIBUTE: Donate or Volunteer


Compass Mark is a partner, friend, and mentor to people in their communities and in their everyday lives as they try to find health for themselves, their families, their co-workers, and friends.

Whether it's providing more than 20,000 hours of free programs to over 1,000 high-risk children, organizing in excess of 100 volunteers to tutor, mentor, and develop the talents of youth, or training employers, teachers, and parents in how to respond to addiction, we are actively involved in turning lives to a healthier direction.

This is how your contribution will help make others stronger:

  • $25 ensures that someone's helpful voice is on our end of the line when any mother, father, son, daughter, employer, teacher, preacher, or counselor is trying to find help for someone in need.
  • $50 will give a teenager 12 hours of holding a mirror to his or her life to see if alcohol or other drugs are leading that life to anything worthwhile. This award-winning program gives parents and youth the answers they need at the time they need them most.
  • $85 will welcome a new child into weekly support groups for a whole school year. This high-risk boy or girl will find new hope and direction in our nationally recognized Elementary Youth Support Program.
  • $150 will give a child a life-changing week at Kids Kamp, just one part of the year-round mentoring, counseling, and after-school studies that lead our children to healthy lives.

Donations to Compass Mark are tax deductible as charitable contributions to the extent allowed by law.
