Fundraising and charity work are major components of the BASS charter.

BASS is a registered Not For Profit Organisation in Korea.

Our Registration Number is:  101-80-07079

Thanks to the generosity of the British and wider international business community and of our own members, BASS is able to contribute to a number of Korean charities each year.

We run a number of fundraising events throughout the year but our major annual fundraiser is the Queen's Birthday Ball.  Held in late May or early June, this glamorous event is the perfect night for the international community to get together and give back to our host country of South Korea.

In the last few years the Ballroom at the Grand Hyatt has been transformed into the Great British Seaside, the luxury cruise liner the QEII, the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, the London Underground, Sherlock Holmes' residence at 221b Baker Street and, in 2016, Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.

We recognise and thank all our sponsors who help make this fundraising possible.  All funds raised at the Ball plus a large portion of Membership fees, are distributed to welfare projects and charitable organisations around Korea.

Our Welfare Committee receives numerous requests for help each year. The Committee carefully considers each request and decides on the allocation of funds by visiting the charities to assess their needs.
