Donate

The Compass mission has never been more relevant than in this moment.

Your gift will be designated to your Compass city or program so you can enrich your community with stronger nonprofits supported by highly-skilled volunteers.

Give by Credit Card or Check

Please make your check out to Friends of Compass and mail to:
P.O. Box 4995 • Washington, DC 20008-4995

You may note your city or program on the memo line.

Give Through a Donor-Advised Fund or Family Foundation

Give Appreciated Stock

To donate stock, please use our Tax ID# (EIN) 26-3724642 and contact us to request our DTC and brokerage account number. It’s also helpful for us know about your transfer so we can properly thank you. Please contact National Director of Philanthropy, Patricia Crawford, at (802) 222-1801 or pcrawford@compassdc.org.

Give Through Your IRA

If you are 70½ or older, you can direct a distribution—one-time or recurring—from your traditional or Roth IRA to Friends of Compass. When your distribution goes directly to Compass it is not subject to federal income tax. While this is an efficient way to donate, please consult a qualified advisor to make sure it’s right for you.

Give Through Your Workplace

Many companies will match volunteer hours and dollar-for-dollar gifts made to nonprofits by their employees. Talk to your Human Resources department about charitable matching contributions.
