If you have a little more time (or a lot of friends) open it up to several teams and charge an entrance fee. Don’t forget to ask donations from the crowd on the day of the event.
Ugly Sweater Party
Ask guest to come prepared with a charity they want to support, $10 or more, and of course an ugly sweater. Guest can take a vote on the favorite sweater, and all the money collected can be given to the winner’s charity of choice.
Visits with Santa
Here is a holiday fundraising idea with two different options. Have parents sign up for a visit from Santa. On Christmas morning (or Christmas Eve), Santa can come knocking on the door to say a special hello before departing for the North Pole. Alternatively, set up a visit with Santa event. Take photos and donations.
Christmas Tree Sale
Selling Christmas trees can be a fun holiday fundraising idea. Either ask a local tree farm or supplier to donate the trees, or to give you a discount based on bulk and the fact that you are donating all of the proceeds to charity. You can either take orders in advance, or set up the trees for a weekend Christmas tree sale event.
Holiday Wrapping Service
Set up at a local mall, shopping center or large store. Offer to wrap shoppers gifts in exchange for a donation to your cause.
