Contributions of any amount help us provide affordable housing enhanced with support services in Tucson. There are several ways that you can designate Compass Affordable Housing as your choice in your workplace giving campaigns:

Matching Gifts– Matching employee contributions are an increasingly popular way for companies to demonstrate support for their employees and the community. When an employee makes a donation to Compass Affordable Housing, the company’s “matching” donation of the same amount doubles the impact of your gift. Ask your employer if it has a matching gift program.

All you need to do is write “Compass Affordable Housing” on the “donor-option” line or provide our EIN number, 86-0708645, on your campaign giving form.
