A letter to our supporters:

This has been a very difficult year for us all. Through it, the Compassion Foundation has continued to meet via Zoom, and as a Board we felt it was especially important to continue with compassionate giving, albeit in a truncated format.

Rather than our usual grant application process, we chose to seek out some smaller organizations that work one on one with local residents in need, and perhaps had little access to fundraising or had normal funding sources cut.

To that end, we chose six organizations and gifted them each $5000. 

We hope you will continue to support us this year. 

We are planning the annual golf outing for August 2021. 

Come join us!

Due to these turbulent times we have decided to cancel our Annual Golf Classic for August 3rd 2020.

It is with regret that we announce the cancellation of this year’s Compassion Foundation Golf Outing due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The golf outing was set for August 3, 2020.

Thank you for all your past support. Your donations enabled us to give grant money to local nonprofit organizations that focus on educational opportunities, job training, the physical and emotional well-being of children and adults, abating hunger and life skills.

This year will be extremely challenging for many of these organizations to raise funds to help those in need.

In lieu of the golf outing, please consider a generous donation so that we can continue our on-going support of these vital agencies.

We hope to be back in 2021!
