About Us

Established in 1985

Santa's Cause is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all-volunteer organization providing anonymous last minute response to children's letters to Santa that would otherwise go unanswered. (We do not want to be a supplemental Christmas service.) We receive most of our requests after other organizations offering help at Christmas have completed their season. All of our letters to Santa are received from pre-approved third party referring individuals such as teachers, counselors, etc. We do not accept letters from the general public. 

Results achieved because of community support:
Santa's Cause has delivered toys and clothing to thousands of children in the Oklahoma City metropolitan and surrounding areas. We have grown from seven couples helping 58 kids to more than 600 volunteers and contributors helping as many as 1,800 kids each year.



Objectives: Our only goal each year is to deliver gifts to each and every child who writes a letter requesting help to one of our pre-approved third-party referring individuals - counselors, teachers, etc. Thanks to the support of donors and volunteers, we have never left a letter unanswered.


Fund Distribution:
  We take pride in the fact that EVERY dollar donated to Santa's Cause goes toward the cause. We do not pay for rent (space is donated), utilities, or help, and no individual or organization is compensated for services. Each and every dollar is used to purchase clothing, toys, batteries or wrapping paper.

 Successes and Challenges: Because we are a "last resort" organization, we seldom know in advance to what extent our help will be required. Most years we are making deliveries until late on Christmas Eve and many years we have run out of money requiring that we call on donors and volunteers with an urgent plea for help, always receiving whatever we require to complete the response to the letters.
