About Us

Elf Squad is a registered  charity ABN: 12849502186 with DGR (deductible gift recipient) status. 

Our community project unites business owners in Geelong, to help local families in need at Christmas.

Elf Squad is organised by a core group of leaders and members of local business groups including TechGeelong, Business in Heels Geelong, Entrepreneurs Geelong, Geelong Small Business Network, Runway Geelong, Kardinia Rotary and BNI.

Elf Squad was founded in 2017 by Geelong entrepreneur Stephanie Beitzel, initially as a community project of her own sole-trader business,  funded with proceeds from her 2017 event, The BIG Geelong CoWorking Day, together with generous donations of toys, treats and gift vouchers from members of the Geelong business community.  

Following the success of Elf Squad’s first Christmas campaign in 2017, where hundreds of volunteers got together to donate, wrap and deliver Elf Sacks full of new toys to 560 children, plus Treat Trays for 110 families, Elf Squad was successfully registered as an incorporated association and charity on 10 June 2018, and secured DGR Deductible Gift Recipient status on 7 September, 2018.
