Help us transform Compton
The primary activity of the Compton Initiative is the quarterly workday, when we match large numbers of volunteers with 20-25 prepared work sites. Each event includes painting, debris removal, yard work and graffiti removal at homes, schools, churches and public spaces.
Since it takes roughly $72,000 to fund each workday, your cash donations truly make a difference for our mission in Compton. While any amount is welcome, these suggested guidelines can help you make a meaningful donation based on your ability to give:
$25 – supplies one workday volunteer
$100 to $500 – supplies painting materials at one worksite
$1000 to $2500 – supplies one home
$3000 to $5000 – supplies two or more homes
Or donate another amount:
