The Compassion Foundation has been providing grants to organizations who help those in needs for 21 years. This year, they decided that along with their regular funding cycle, they needed to help in additional ways. They created an alliance between Big Brothers Big Sisters and Sci-Tech Science Museum that allowed 20 low income children the opportunity to go to summer camp at no cost. They helped families with case management services when they were facing eviction, job loss and other issues caused by the economy. They assisted families in getting services that lead to housing, employment, food, shelter and clothing. They ran mini fundraisers so they could give those contributions to fill in the gaps in funding ie. giving to an agencies client holiday giving program.
