If the Christmas Fund has taught us anything, it's that Richmond is a generous, compassionate community. The program relies almost entirely on donations, and every year, we're amazed by the support we receive. Amazed, and truly grateful. Our mission is to brighten the holidays for families in need, and we couldn't do it without you.
Here are the ways you can give.
Cash donations to the Christmas Fund are greatly appreciated. For every $100 donated, we can provide a Richmond family with grocery vouchers for a festive holiday dinner and much needed Christmas gifts for the children. Help ensure all Richmond families have that special something under the Christmas tree. Let’s make sure the holidays are a magical time for everyone!
It's easiest to give online, using our secure donation page. Once your donation is received, you'll be issued an electronic tax receipt via e-mail.
You can also make a donation by mail to:
Richmond Christmas Fund
190 – 7000 Minoru Blvd.
Richmond, BC V6Y 3Z5
Please make sure your name and address are included on the cheque (payable to Richmond Christmas Fund) so we can send you a tax receipt.
Our charitable registration number is 11911 9055 RR0001.
For the third straight year, the Richmond Christmas Fund is hosting an online auction. Running from November 21 to December 7, and featuring over 200 items, the auction is a great way to support the Christmas Fund and do a little holiday shopping! You'll find amazing deals on everything from restaurant gift cards to kitchen appliances to rounds of golf. Even if you end of competing with another bidder - those air fryers are popular! - you can still feel good knowing that all proceeds help brighten the holidays for families in need.
Register an account today, so you're ready to bid as soon as the auction opens!
If you'd like to combine your bidding with a glamorous evening out on the town, you're encouraged to join us at A Not So Silent Night. Back after a two-year hiatus, the Christmas Fund's signature fundraising event will take place December 7 at the new Porsche Centre Richmond.
This year's event will be an elegant stand-up reception, with a delectable selection of food and drink, holiday-themed entertainment, and a stunning live auction, featuring 10 one-of-a-kind luxury packages.
While the online auction is open to everyone (at no cost), only event attendees can bid in the live auction. Tickets are $125 each, or $1,000 for a package of 10, and can be purchased directly through the auction website.
Drop off new, unwrapped gifts at Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives (190 - 7000 Minoru Blvd.) Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm. Please be advised that, due to allergies, we are no longer accepting donations of stuffed animals. We encourage you to give books instead of bears and toys instead of teddies!
While we're extremely grateful for all toy donations, there are several items we anticipate being particularly popular this holiday season. As such, these are the items we need the most. You can find them below, on our 2022 Toy Wish List.
From the Richmond Auto Mall's Windows of Hope, to the Richmond RCMP's Annual Toy Drive and Pancake Breakfast, the holiday calendar is filled with events that support the Christmas Fund. And the best part? You can participate! Click here to view a complete list of upcoming Christmas Fund events, and how you can volunteer, purchase tickets, or otherwise lend your support.
