About Tag Days

Every winter, Galens members don red ponchos, grab metal buckets, and take to the streets of greater Ann Arbor to collect monetary donations for the children of Washtenaw County.

Held on the first weekend of December since 1927, Tag Days has become an important Ann Arbor tradition and occupies a central role in Galens' mission to support local children's charities. Galens members annually raise tens of thousands of dollars, with 100% of the collected money donated directly to local organizations and charities.

Over the past years, we have donated to such organizations as Perry Nursery School, Family Learning Institute, Corner Health Center, C.S. Mott Child & Family Life, and many more. We have also funded many children from Washtenaw County to attend summer camps through organizations such as Special Days Camp, National Kidney Foundation of Michigan, Cystic Fibrosis Network, and Hemophilia Foundation of Michigan.
