The British Association of Seoul (BASS) has a long history of charity work and community involvement in South Korea.
One of our key objectives is to support welfare organisations in Korea. We recognise the importance of being involved in the local community and giving back to our host country.
BASS raises funds to donate to Korean charities through events, membership fees, raffles and other initiatives.
Each year we select a number of projects as recipients of our fundraising efforts. In 2018 we donated a total of 8 million KRW to organisations that support the elderly, children, single mothers and low-income families.
We also try to help in other ways, such as through volunteering our services where possible. Several of our members help on a regular basis at a local orphanage.
The BASS Committee maintains close relationships with all the projects we support and many of these relationships extend over several years. You can read more about the charities we currently support on their individual pages.
If you would like to get involved as a corporate sponsor, work with the Welfare Coordinator or join us on a welfare visit, we would love to hear from you.
