Supporting Korean Charities

Send to friendSend to friend

The British Association of Seoul (BASS) has a long history of charity work and community involvement in South Korea.

One of the main aims of BASS is to help needy welfare organisations throughout Korea.

BASS recognises the importance of being involved in the local community and giving back to our host country.

BASS raises funds to donate to Korean charities by hosting various events throughout the year. Our main fundraiser is the annual Queen’s Birthday Ball.

Every year, we select a number of projects as recipients of our fundraising efforts. In the past we have supported charities that aid children, the elderly, education, homeless, mentally challenged persons, women in high-risk situations, physically challenged persons and medical institutions that help the poor.

Thanks to the generosity of our members, the business community and our Korean hosts, BASS has been able to raise up to 85 million KRW per year over the last 5 years.

We hope that one of our many social events and fundraising opportunities may tempt you into action.

The BASS Welfare Committee maintains close relationships with all the projects we support; many of those relationships extend over several years. As you can see from the photos, we visit projects dealing with a wide variety of needs, all over Korea.

If you would like to get involved as a corporate sponsor, work with the Welfare Committee or join us on a Welfare visit, we would love to hear from you.
