The Compass has a generous friend who is willing to add to a new donor’s gifts with a $50 donation.  That means if you give a gift of any amount as a first-time donor to WCRH your gift will have an additional $50 added to it.  First-time monthly givers will also have the additional $50 added along with their pledge.  If you have never given a gift to support The Compass, we need to hear from you today!  Let’s meet the challenge with 100 first-time donors!

This year’s goal is $550,000.
