Since 1984, community groups have raised over $20 million to support projects and initiatives within their communities with the People’s Choice Community Lottery. The Community Lottery is now open for this year and you can be part of it too, along with hundreds of animal rescues, volunteer services, sporting groups and many more community groups. Ticket sales close 24 February 2022, so your group has plenty of time to get involved and fundraise. So why should you register your group in the Community Lottery?

1. Pocket 100% of your ticket proceeds

All funds raised by your group in the Community Lottery go straight to your group. People’s Choice and our proud business and media partners facilitate the administration, advertising, and prizes so 100% of every $2 ticket sold goes  back to your community group.

2. Your supporters have a chance to win a prize

While your group’s supporters are helping you raise funds by buying tickets, they also go in the draw for a chance to win a great prize. With 40 prizes up for grabs including a Toyota Kluger GX AWD Hybrid (RRP $59,537), a Toyota Corolla Ascent Hybrid Hatch (RRP $31,610) and a Harvey Norman Grand Home Package (RRP $25,330), they are in the draw for a chance to win!

3. You can fundraise 24/7 

As the Community Lottery is 100% online, your group can raise funds 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You don’t need to worry about finding time in your busy schedule to go out and sell tickets, you can fundraise anytime, anywhere.

4. No minimum to what you can raise

You can go big or small, the choice is yours. Whether you want to raise funds to help with a big project like renovating your club house or buying additional food for rescue animals, you can decide your fundraising goal. You can also increase your goal throughout the Community Lottery period, so you can encourage your supporters to buy more tickets to help your group.

5. No messy paper work

Avoid the messy paper work and apply in minutes with the Community Lottery being 100% online. You can apply for your group to participate in the Community Lottery in the comfort of your own home, anytime. No need for a printer or mountains of paper work, or taking hours to fill out forms, you can complete your registration in no time.

6. $2 per ticket means anyone can buy a ticket to support your club 

The low ticket price of $2 means anyone can buy tickets to support your club. Whether someone wants to purchase a single ticket or a bundle, you can sell widely.  To register for the Community Lottery, visit here where you can follow and read tips and tricks from the Seacliff Surf Life Saving Club who have been part of the Community Lottery for 11 years.
