Santa Dollar / Bunny Bucks
These seasonal fundraising programs partner clubs with a local retailer to sell U.S. currency with a picture of Santa or the Easter Bunny in place of George Washington. This program has been very successful for the Birmingham Civitan Club, and many other non-profit groups around the country. Visit their website at www.santadollars.com for more information.
Sam's Club Grants
While you're at Sam's Club picking up your Candy Box mints, apply for the Sam's Club Foundation Matching Grants. Each location can match up to $1,000 of your club's fundraising for the Civitan International Foundation, or your local 501(c)(3) organization. Check with your local Sam's Club for more information.
