What is the People's Choice Community Lottery?


Community groups register to participate in the People's Choice Community Lottery each year as a major fundraising activity between April and August.

Since it began in 1984, the Community Lottery is an Australian lottery, which has raised a whopping $19 million for schools, sporting clubs, charities, volunteer groups and other not-for-profit organisations around Australia, who keep 100% from every $2 ticket they sell.

People’s Choice and our supporting partners meet all the costs associated with the lottery such as prizes, promotional material, advertising, printing of tickets, licensing and legal requirements, leaving our participating community groups clear of any costs to focus on what's important; building stronger communities.


How can I support a community group?


Buy your tickets online, in person through a People's Choice branch or direct from the community groups themselves to go into the draw to win 115 prizes worth a total of more than $360,000.

Online you can search for the 2019 participating group you wish to support, select how many tickets you’d like to buy and have them emailed straight to you.


How can I get involved?


Is your organisation a not-for-profit sporting club, registered charity, school, pre-school, kindergarten or community group?
Is your organisation located in South Australia, Victoria, the ACT or the Northern Territory?
Would all money raised be returned for the sole benefit of your organisation?

If you answered yes to all of the above, then the Community Lottery could be just the ticket for your organisation's fundraising.
