Join Our NEW Croydon Community Fundraising Lottery

19 April 2023

Croydon Voluntary Action is launching Croydon Community Lottery! We want to help keep funds local by providing this amazing free online fundraising tool to local groups. Let's come together to continue to make Croydon the best place to live. 

Good Cause registrations are now open. Ticket sales commence on the 9th May and the first-ever draw will be on the 27th May 2023. 


This is an opportunity to use incentivised giving with Croydon Community Lottery for free AND without having to worry about the lottery licensing - we take care of all of that so you don't have to.
It’s free, quick, and easy to register to fundraise through our local lottery. Once your charity has been approved you’ll get:

  • Your own public Good Cause webpage and private dashboard on the lottery website
  • An ongoing variety of seasonal downloadable marketing materials (yes, all free!)
  • The ability to ask your supporters to ‘give’ with a chance to win
  • Fantastic prize structure with chances of cash up to £25,000 weekly, as well as exciting monthly bonus prizes!
  • Regular monthly payments


So what's the story?

You just need to tell people to buy tickets to support your cause through your lottery page. It is that simple. 

It’s a weekly draw, tickets are £1 each and most supporters play by monthly direct debit from as little as *£4.34 a month (*1 ticket a week paid monthly). 

Selling just 50 lottery tickets a week will see you raise £1,300 a year, not to mention any donations you could get from lucky winners! Most supporters buy more than one ticket and support for around two years. So, 50 tickets doesn't necessarily mean 50 supporters. There is no limit to how many people can buy tickets to support your charity either, so the sky really is the limit!

We know this can seem too good to be true so we have broken down the £1 lottery ticket for absolute transparency as follows:

  • 50% goes to you, paid out every month
  • 10% goes to Croydon community fund, used to further fund good causes in Croydon
  • 20% goes to the prize pot
  • 20% goes to the administration and running costs of the lottery and VAT

Any local not-for-profit or charity organisation can apply pursuant to the terms and conditions. There is no catch, it’s free to use Croydon Community Lottery to fundraise for your cause.

Don't miss the first draw on the 27th of May! Together we'll continue to make Croydon the best place to live.
