    You can nominate ticket sellers for your organisation on your application, and we’ll provide certificates of authority for them to sell Lottery tickets on behalf of your group.

    Sellers of Community Lottery tickets must be 15 years or older, unless they are accompanied by, and under the supervision, of an adult.

  • We sold tickets last year. How do we sign up again?

    You’ll receive an email to your organisation’s nominated address with login details to apply for the lottery again this year. Here, you can login to review your profile, set up your online fundraising page and request paper ticket books.

  • Is there any cost for participating in the Community Lottery?

    No, there is no cost whatsoever to participate in the People’s Choice Community Lottery. With the support of our business and media partners, People’s Choice meets all costs associated with the Lottery, including the provision of prizes, printing of tickets and display material, point of sale opportunities, administration, advertising and promotion.

  • Is my organisation eligible to participate?
    • Is your organisation a not-for-profit sporting club, registered charity, school, pre-schools, kindergarten or community group?
    • Are you located in South Australia, Victoria, the ACT or the Northern Territory?
    • Would all money raised in the Community Lottery be returned for the sole benefit of the organisation?

    If you answered yes to all of the above, then you could be eligible to participate.

    Groups that are ineligible to participate include individuals, private enterprises and corporate social clubs.

  • How many tickets can we apply to sell?

    With 900,000 Community Lottery tickets to be sold, we ask that each participating organisation sells a minimum of five books, or 50 paper tickets.

    All requests for Community Lottery paper tickets are capped at 1,000 books, or 10,000 tickets, per organisation.

    Sales of online tickets, however, have no limits per organisation and do not affect your allocation of paper tickets. Upon registering to participate in the Lottery, your organisation will automatically be signed up to sell tickets online.

  • How do we deposit funds raised?

    Yes, your organisation is required to deposit the equivalent funds for all sold paper tickets so we can then process a 100% refund.

    We don’t accept cash, but we’ll accept a cheque in-branch for the total raised, made payable to ‘People’s Choice Community Foundation.’

    Alternatively, you can deposit the funds by EFT to the People’s Choice Community Foundation account:

    Account Name: People's Choice CF
    BSB: 805 050
    Account Number: 63497228
    Narration/Reference: Your Organisation ID and Name

  • What details must buyers provide on the ticket stubs?

    We need to be able to contact winners after the Community Lottery draw, so we need the name and address of the ticket purchaser on every paper ticket stub and when tickets are purchased online.

    This info is collected so we can notify winners, and won’t be used for any other purpose.

  • Where do we pick up and return paper tickets?

    Collection and return of your Community Lottery paper tickets will be from your nominated People’s Choice Credit Union branch, as specified upon application.
