Giving Tuesday with Bass Coast

November 29th is Giving Tuesday; the worlds largest generosity movement. Created to counterbalance the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is an invitation to support the causes that matter most to you.

Bass Coast has compiled a list of fundraisers hosted by community members and non-profit organizations that align with Bass Coast's values.

No act of generosity goes unnoticed, and everyone has something to give.
