Compass is Committed to the Central Oregon Community
Giving back to our community is part of who we are as a company. There are so many wonderful organizations in Central Oregon that help make it the amazing place to live that it is.
As a company, we have had a commitment to financially support Bethlehem Inn and Shepherd’s House Ministries during 2016, 2017 and 2018. We hold an annual fundraising event in support of our designated Compass Cares charities which offers the opportunity for clients and community members to give as well. In total, we raised $72,542 over the three-year commitment. In addition, our team also donates gifts before Christmas to a family of a child with a critical medical need through Central Oregon Sparrow Clubs Bless a Nest program.
Our commitment to social responsibility includes supporting initiatives that contribute to the vitality, sustainability and future growth in Central Oregon. We are proud to have been a supporter of OSU-Cascades’ “4 Central Oregon” a campaign to bring OSU, the four-year university to our community.
Our team serves the community in many ways on boards, on ad hoc committees, planning fundraising events, contributing time and money to support nonprofit organizations, averaging 1,500 reported hours of volunteer time each year. A few of the organizations served include Bend Economic Development Association Board (BEDAB), the Bend Chamber and the Economic Development of Central Oregon (EDCO). Some of our team members are participants in various area Rotary Clubs and contribute to a long list of civic and community organizations as well as local charities, from the Deschutes Children’s Foundation and CASA of Central Oregon to Mount Bachelor Sports and Education Foundation and Healing Reins.
