Give the Gift of Funds with a Santa Claus Fundraiser

Posted by Stumps Spirit on December 12, 2007

North Pole Delight KitYou can have the merriest fundraiser of all when you invite Santa Claus to your school! Set up an area for students and parents to bring their kids, pets, or families to get their pictures taken with Santa! Your students will have a lot of fun posing with their friends too! Santa’s not just for little kids.

Transform an area of your auditorium, cafeteria or school gym into the North Pole with a candy cane decorations, which includes a sleigh, candy cane arch and North Pole Sign. Fill the decorations out with snowflake floral sheeting attached to the floor or walls for a snowy effect. Create a walkway to Santa’s chair by lining the path with snowflake gossamer material, holiday candy cane decorations and giant peppermint candy decorations. There’s also evergreen standees or white fir tree standees great for creating the impression you’re in an arctic forest! If the ceiling’s not too high to reach, hang shimmering snowflakes, lighted hanging Moravian stars and a 3D snowflake cascade for a snowy effect! Don’t forget snowflake balloons! They’re the perfect finishing touch to your Santa Claus decorations.

Once you’ve decorated, advertise! Make banners with a banner making kit or order a personalized banner. The crowds will come and the money will roll in. Ask for a free-will donation for each person or group who has their picture taken with Santa and the elves. You can have your cheerleaders dress as the elves. Have the school mascot join in the fun. Students will love having their photo taken with Santa and the mascot!

The best part is that when the fundraiser’s over, your school is already decorated for a school-wide holiday party or dance! Charge a small cover fee for the event and you double your opportunity for generating profits.
