Letters To Santa provides direct assistance
to families facing urgent financial hardship.

Give directly.  Change a life.

We organize live fundraising events featuring legendary musicians, comedians, and improvisers. Our operating budget is paid for by our Benefactors*, a small group of donors committed to covering our administrative costs so that 100% of all public donations received are used in program initiatives.

We partner with other nonprofit organizations to identify economically-disadvantaged families who are then given the opportunity to write a letter addressing three questions:

1. If you could receive any gift for you and your family this holiday season, what would it be?

2. If you had one chance to tell your story to someone who wants to answer your letter, what would you share?

3. If your letter is answered, how would it transform your life?

We respond to every letter, surprising families on their doorsteps with armloads of gifts.  Each family receives what they requested in their letter—typically warm clothing or beds for their children—plus food, toys, household necessities, a computer for every child, a tablet for the letter writer, and an unconditional financial gift of $10,000 for ongoing expenses.  No strings attached.
