How Your Ticket Purchase Can Help Others

Lottery games have long been a source of excitement and the possibility of life-changing wins. But did you know that every time you buy a ticket with The Lottery Office, you’re not just playing for personal gain? The Lottery Office, an Australian-owned and operated company, has made charitable giving an integral part of its operations. Your ticket purchase can make a significant difference in the lives of those in need through The Lottery Office Charity Fund, and your contributions are put to much-needed work in institutions and for causes that greatly value your help.

Since its launch in late 2018, The Lottery Office Charity Fund, has provided relief and assistance to Australians in need. The fund works closely with a growing list of Australian charities and community groups, ensuring the support goes where it’s most needed.

One of the remarkable aspects of The Lottery Office’s charitable efforts is that 100% of the proceeds contributed to the fund are donated to Australian charities and public interest funds. The impact of these donations has already been substantial, with charities supported including CareFlight, Darwin’s Special Children’s Christmas party, Lifeline Survivors of Suicide, Victoria’s Bunjilwarra Rehabilitation Service and Volunteers for Palliative Care.

These contributions have made a real difference in the lives of individuals and communities across Australia.

So how does The Lottery Office’s Charity Fund work?

Unlike operating a specific charity lottery, The Lottery Office offers exclusive and boutique Australian Northern Territory government-licensed lotteries. When you purchase a ticket, we purchase a corresponding ticket with the same numbers in an equivalent overseas lottery draw. If the overseas ticket owned by The Lottery Office wins a prize, the prize money is collected and the same value is paid out to you for your winning ticket. And with each ticket sale, part of the price is contributed to The Lottery Office Charity Fund.

The more you play with The Lottery Office, the more donations are contributed to the fund, amplifying the positive impact for Australian charities. By simply enjoying the excitement of playing lottery games, you’re actively supporting causes that may not have access to sufficient funding otherwise.

The decision to integrate charitable giving into our operations stems from a strong sense of responsibility towards the Australian community. We understand the vital role that charities play in addressing societal needs and recognise the financial challenges of many of these charities. With a combination of The Lottery Office’s and your support, charities can expand their services and help more individuals who are in dire circumstances.

The range of charities and community groups that benefit from The Lottery Office’s Charity Fund is diverse, encompassing various causes and issues. From assisting in bushfire recovery efforts to supporting wildlife preservation and aiding the homeless, the fund aims to help organisations that genuinely make a difference in people’s lives.

The Positive Impact Goes Beyond Financial Assistance

The Lottery Office team actively engages with philanthropic organisations, participating in activities that support their work. From volunteering at animal welfare organisations to purchasing and delivering goods for distribution, our team members are committed to making a tangible difference in the lives of those in need.

The Lottery Office team cleans up Australia

As a player, you can take pride in knowing your participation in lottery games with The Lottery Office contributes to a better Australia. Every ticket purchase represents an opportunity to support local communities and help those who need it most.

So, the next time you buy a lottery ticket, remember you’re not only playing for the chance to win big, you’re also playing an important role in helping to support Australian charities. The Lottery Office’s commitment to charitable giving showcases the power of collective action in making a meaningful impact on society.

Join the cause, play with purpose, and be a part of the positive change that lottery games can bring to the lives of others.
