Organize Your Own Fundraiser

Your fundraiser can benefit our neighbors in crisis—the homeless, hungry, and unaccompanied young adults in our community.

We are grateful to anyone in our community, ranging from schools, businesses, private foundations and neighbors, who are interested in hosting independent fundraisers in support of Northwest Compass. Bake sales, holiday gatherings, any type of fundraising event can make a difference.
