Give Local Bay, run by the Bay Area Community Foundation, is an entire day dedicated to raising funds for local non-profits.
On Tuesday, May 2, 2017, the Bay Area Community Foundation will host
Give Local Bay, a 24-hour Giving Event for Bay and Arenac Counties.
Camp Fish Tales has an endowment with the BACF and we are looking for donors like you to help it grow!
Once we reach a certain amount in our endowment, we can start collecting the interest to help with camp.
Donate on May 2nd and your gift makes a larger impact! Every donation made in the 24-hour period will be increased by a share of an incentive pool (final amount TBD). The more the non-profit raises the more incentive money they receive! Prizes are also awarded to non-profits throughout the day. Think of the impact you can make on the entire community if you Give Local!
Give Local Bay will raise money for our community, bring new donors and increased awareness to local charities, and help make our county a more vibrant place to live.
On May 2, 2017, you can make online donations of $10 or more to Camp Fish Tales, using your phone, tablet or computer. The leaderboard will update in real time showing how many dollars Camp Fish Tales has raised throughout the day & evening. You may also drop off a check to the Bay Area Community Foundation (located in the Pere Marquette Depot in downtown Bay City), with the name of Camp Fish Tales in the memo area of your check or on an attached form.
