Giving Tuesday 2020

A Global Generosity Movement | December 1st

Giving Tuesday was created as a philanthropic response to the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. In a time of shopping and sales, our "give back" mentality tends to get pushed to the side. This is a day that encourages people to do good.

Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

Why Participate?

Last year, nonprofits from more than 150 countries participated to raise an impressive $400 million through 3.6 million individual gifts. Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help.

Every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give. 

How Does Compass Give Back?

Our #GivingTuesday is focused around helping patients and families when they need it most. 

We entered a multi-year commitment with Boston Children’s Hospital and have pledged to raise $100,000 through our “Room to Heal” fund which will support the Patient and Family Services Department within the hospital.

Currently, we've raised $59,154. With your help, we hope we can surpass our pledge. Join us in giving patients the added comfort and joy they so desperately need in some of life's hardest moments.


How our Compass Cares program gives back: 

  • We make our apartments available and affordable year-round for patients and families needing housing close to treatment centers.
  • We continuously partner with like-minded companies to secure in-kind donations and create initiatives that help patients and families in need. Shoutout to our newest partners: Hospitality Homes, TaskRabbit, and Love Your Melon!
  • We raise funds for patient services at local hospitals. We even go there ourselves - throwing events, setting up craft stations, and having fun photoshoots with Roary, like you see here.
