Our Top 12 Christmas Fundraising Ideas

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and with the festive season on our doorstep, what better time to have fun with your fundraising! To help you along the way we have put together a great selection of 12 Christmas fundraising ideas to inspire you to do something…a bit Christmassy.

  1. Wrapping Station

    Offer to wrap Christmas presents for friends, family, teachers and classmates. Use recycled materials and seasonal decoration to take the stress away at the busiest time of the year!

  2. Reindeer Dust

    Mix porridge oats and biodegradable glitter into small bags for the Santa believers in your life!

  3. Candy Canes

    Bulk buy your candy canes to sell in school. Students can buy it as a secret gift for friends and classmates and pay a little more for a secret message to be attached – then spend an afternoon delivering round classrooms!

  1. Christmas Elf

    Provide a service with a festive twist – help get your families Christmas trees, neighbours’ homes or your teachers’ classrooms spick and span before Christmas!

  2. Christmas Tree Collection

    Offer the service for after Christmas with a pre-Christmas commitment of a deposit. Make a booking form and deliver round to your neighbourhood pre-Christmas and then collect trees in the new year and take them to the tip on their behalf. Why not go the extra mile and turn those trees into wood chips so they can be used for rabbit hutches too.

  3. Santa Fun Run

    Have a bit of fun this Christmas and organise a fun run in your area.

  4. Hot Chocolate Reindeer Cones

    Hot chocolate powder, marshmallows and some chocolate chips decorated with a couple of eyes and a nose!

  5. Sip and Paint Nights

    Provide painting materials and organise an entrance fee for an evening of crafty Christmassy fun.

  6. Christmas Hamper

    Write to local businesses for sponsorships in the form of items for your hamper (delis, local wine sellers, garden centres, boutique candles and bath bombs, spa voucher etc.) in return for advertising their business and supporting your fundraising cause.

  1. Christmas Fete

    Arts and crafts, cakes, drinks, face painting and much more – come together as a team to organise, invite everyone you know and ask your team to do the same and then run your own stall, taking your own stall’s profits at the end of the day.

  2. Personalised Baubles

    From flags of countries visited to pet names or the initials of family relatives, there’s so many ways to personalise baubles and these can be sold to family, friends, at Christmas fetes or as a stocking filler!

  3. Christmas Carolling

    Whether singing or playing music in school, at an upcoming event, local care home or in the community there’s plenty of places to share festive tunes and raise funds for expedition – don’t forget to download and print a money collection box from your Traveller Gateway to help collect those donations!
