Compass Society

Support from our Compass Society empowers Camp Kudzu to forward our mission in educating, inspiring, and empowering children and teens with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Funding not only supports our campers, but also their families and people closest to them. We have learned through our 20 years of experience that Camp Kudzu provides meaningful learning opportunities and a strong community for children and teens living with this lifelong disease.

We hope to grow our mission and expand our impact by serving more families in need of life-changing Kudzu experiences. You can be a vital part of this growth by joining our Compass Society. With an annual gift of $1,000 or more, you will be an important member within the Kudzu community  and unlock special benefits as a Compass Society member. Your donation provides children and teens the neccessary diabetes management skills to thrive throughout their life. Thanks to partners like you, we will serve more than 1,000 campers and family members this year! 

If you are interested in joining, please contact Rob Shaw at robert.shaw@campkudzu.org or Jessica Martinez at jmartinez@campkudzu.org.

I’m proud to be a member of the Compass Society because I know that my gifts help children living with type 1 diabetes learn how to manage their disease. This will empower them to do whatever they set their minds to without diabetes getting in their way.
