Compass Crew

Compass Crew is the community fundraising program that benefits our neighbors in crisis—the homeless, hungry, heroes and unaccompanied young adults in our community.

The program is open to anyone in the community, ranging from schools, businesses, private foundations and neighbors, who are interested in hosting independent fundraisers in support of Northwest Compass (NWC). From bake sales to holiday gatherings and more, any type of fundraising event can make a difference and the Compass Crew team is available to help along the way.
