Thank you for your support
Be B.A.D. for a Good Cause
Thanks to you, we are able to impact the lives of more individuals in our community!
We have received over $20,000 in individual B.A.D. donations. This means that our amazing partners, Tilka Construction and Tbaytel, will also donate $20,000. Your commitment to be B.A.D. for a good cause has helped us raise over $40,000 for our community!!
These dollars can provide things like a healthy breakfast for young children, counselling to individuals experiencing domestic violence, and warm clothing to those who normally have to go without.
What is Be B.A.D. for Good?
B.A.D.stands for Buck A Day.
It's an opportunity for you to easily invest in your community by donating a dollar a day! When you donate $365 you are helping make an impact right here in Thunder Bay.
For example, $365 provides:
Why Should I Be B.A.D.?
When you make the decision to Be B.A.D. your donation will have twice the impact!
Tilka Construction and Tbaytel have teamed together and will match (up to $20,000) any first time donation of $365/year. If you're already a donor, but not quite a B.A.D. donor, they will also match the amount you donate bringing you up to $365/year
How Can I Make My B.A.D. Donation?
If you have an Employee Campaign at your workplace, consider increasing your payroll deduction to $365/year. Payroll deduction is simple! The deduction comes right off your paycheque, and your donation will be reflected on your T4 - there's no other paperwork to worry about!
When filling out your payroll donation form, a $365/year donation works out to the following:
$14.04 x 26 pay periods
$15.21 x 24 pay periods
Don't have a Employee Campaign at your workplace? No problem!
You can donate a lump sum of $365 via cash, cheque, or credit card. You also have the option of making a monthly credit card donation online by clicking here.
When making a monthly credit card donation online, please be sure to enter an "Other" donation amount of $30.42
With the charitable tax credit your $365 donation only costs $259
