  • 1. Login to FundHub, click “Enter $$ and Checks,” create pledges for your cash donations, pay them off with your personal credit card, and keep the cash. OR...
  • 2. Write a check (made out to "Blue Sea Philanthropy USA”) for the total amount of cash you’ve collected. Mail it to the CNOY Head Office with your completed pledge sheet.

A few common sense suggestions:

  • A cell phone for emergencies (recommended but not required)

  • Extra snacks if you have allergies or food sensitivities

Waivers

All participants must register online this year and accept the electronic waiver.

  • When they register online, they will automatically accept an electronic waiver, which is all that is needed for adults.
  • If you have youth or children on your team, they will need to have their parent or guardian sign a printed paper waiver.
  • Someone on your team (like you!) must take a photo of all child/youth waivers and send them to waivers@cnoy.com.

About Compass House

For nearly five decades, Compass House stands as one of the nation's oldest shelter and service providers for youth, offering shelter, counseling, and so much more. Compass House is the ONLY shelter in Western New York that provides services for youth of all gender identifies. From a warm bed and hot meals to caring words, Compass House is here when youth need us, 24-hours a day, and 365 days a year.


Our mission is to provide runaway, homeless and street youth with safe shelter and services, through a voluntary and mutually agreed-upon process, in an environment that supports dignity, respect and self-reliance.


We serve approximately 300 youth at our shelter annually and an additional 300 youth at our Resource Center.
