Our Future

The mission of 630 CHED Santas Anonymous was inspired by a simple wish: to see every child receive a new toy at Christmas. Since 1955, the staff at 630 CHED and volunteers from our community have worked together to make this wish come true. 

As we plan for the next 60 years and beyond, 630 CHED Santas Anonymous has established an endowment fund through the Edmonton Community Foundation. Santas Anonymous relies on the generosity of individuals and corporations. Donations can be unpredictable in times of economic uncertainty, potentially jeopardizing our ability to continue the program.

The growth of the endowment fund will provide a stable resource of funds regardless of a variable economy.  Your support will provide our organization with sustainable funding to ensure delivering the “spirit of Christmas” to over 25,000 children will continue in Edmonton every year.

"We would like to thank you all for the wonderful gifts. My kids are so happy with what they've received. We didn't buy them much this year as we have been impacted with the economic turmoil in our beloved city but because of this kind-hearted program, they were so overjoyed. You have restored their faith in Santa, and my faith in the kindness of people."
