Statement of Purpose

Bay Area Sportsman's Association was formed by a dedicated group of Coos County Sportsmen in order to provide a quality social event to raise funds primarily benefiting local causes, charities, groups or projects; with an emphasis on youth and outdoor activities.


About BASA Grants............. About the Annual Dinner...............

Each year the Executive Board has the difficult, but enjoyable task of allocating proceeds of the annual banquet. Soon after everything is totaled up from the year's dinner, the grant application period begins.

Since the beginning, BASA has attempted to maximize donations to groups and organizations, primarily local to Coos County, OR., with an emphasis on outdoor recreation and youth. Stronger consideration has been given to requests for capital expenditures, as opposed to working capital requests.

BASA attempts to fund only those groups that benefit or represent the best interest of the majority of their general membership. 


The annual Bay Area Sportsman's Dinner Auction is held each spring in Coos Bay, Oregon.

In order to have a successful event there are three factors which must come together.

  • A dedicated committee to organize the event.
  • Generous individuals and businesses to provide the merchandise.
  • Buyers to attend the annual dinner to support the charities and groups that are the beneficiaries.

The BASA committee feel that these factors are present to insure a successful annual dinner event. The Board of Directors wishes to especially thank all the generous donors that attend the event.

Upon completion of the event and after all expenses are paid, the Board of Directors allocates the proceeds to a variety of causes with emphasis on keeping the money local.
