Compass Mark is recognized as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization by the Internal Revenue Service. All contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

You Can Make a Difference:

  • $250  // gives a child a meaningful week at Future Generations, our after-school youth leadership, mentoring, and academic enrichment program.
  • $100  // provides an educational experience for at-risk youth through Student Skills for Life, a program that helps young people make informed decisions about drugs.
  • $50  // ensures that a helpful, reassuring voice is available each day in our Drug & Alcohol Information Center, a service offering confidential referrals and resources for those in need.

I have seen young lives destroyed and lost by falling into addiction and I have seen other young folks who have been given the means to withstand, resist and thus avoid and prevent addiction. Compass Mark is the only organization 100% devoted to providing kids with skills and tools to repel the pull of drugs and alcohol through their various programs – all science-based and presented by a dedicated, committed, and caring staff!

If our communities and individuals are to stand tall in the future, it will be because we made our own shoulders strong enough to lift those future generations to higher ground. Legacy gifts support Compass Mark to secure our programs and resources for generations to come.

Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC)

Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC) authorizes tax credits for businesses that make contributions to educational improvement or scholarship organizations.  A business can receive a tax credit equal to 75% of its contribution for one year, or up to 90% of its contribution if the business agrees to provide the same amount for two consecutive years.

Compass Mark has been designated as an eligible Educational Improvement Organization by the PA Department of Community and Economic Development.  Contributions received through EITC provide vital support to our Future Generations program, which offers year-round youth leadership programming designed to improve student academic performance and promote development of positive life skills.
