The BAY BASH Foundation
The purpose of our foundation is to provide financial assistance as well as mental and physical development to adults and children with intellectual and other disabilities.
Financial assistance is awarded to individuals with disabilities and families who support children with disabilities. Assistance is provided in many ways including; co-pay of medical bills, supplying medical equipment not covered under insurance, helping individuals pay for travel to treatment centers, as well as covering other medical related needs to individuals with disabilities.
We facilitate and supply access to environmental and outdoor activities including eco-tours, crabbing, oyster harvesting and fishing, both recreational and competition, through a variety of venues for children and adults with intellectual and other limiting disabilities. It is our goal to provide them opportunities to develop a love and respect for the outdoors, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other special needs individuals and the community.
The BAY BASH FOUNDATION strives to create a better world by fostering the acceptance and inclusion of all people. Through our programs, individuals with disabilities discover new strengths and abilities, skills and success through integration. Our aim is to provide a platform where special needs members of our community may feel joy, inclusiveness and develop confidence and fulfillment in life.
To maximize our impact on current efforts, we may seek to collaborate with other non-profit organizations which fall under the 501 (c)(3) section of the internal revenue code and are operated exclusively for educational and charitable purposes.
With opportunity to participate in outdoor public events, individuals with disabilities are empowered with a “can do” attitude verses what they can’t. Attention to disabilities fades away. Instead, We offer adults and children with intellectual and other disabilities many ways to be involved in their communities and many ways to show their value.
