Bags for My Cause

Big Y Cares Community Giving Bag

Big Y is committed to making a difference in the communities in which we work and live. That is why with every purchase of a Community Giving Bag, we’re empowering you to direct a $1 donation to a local non-profit working diligently to better the communities we all call home. Creating healthy & thriving communities - that is our mission.

You’re only three steps away from giving back to your community:

1. Visit within 7 days of your purchase.

2. Remove the scratch-off layer to reveal your unqiue identifier

3. Submit your identifier and select the non-profit you’d like to receive a $1 donation. If your donation is not directed within 7 days of your purchase, we will send it to a local non-profit for you.

Thank you for supporting the communities we serve.

Bakes for Breast Cancer

Bakes for Breast Cancer

This nonprofit organization takes a very unique approach to fundraising for breast cancer research and treatment. Big Y has supported Bakes for Breast Cancer through its Community Bag Program.

Connecting arts and culture with community

“Our mission is to end breast cancer by funding cancer prevention and treatment research. The money we raise enables oncologists to start their research. Having lost my mother to breast cancer when I was 16, I dedicated myself to fundraising for breast cancer research and have been doing that for 30 years.”
