  • How do we stay informed of Lottery updates?

    The Community Lottery website is updated regularly with all the latest Lottery updates and we’ll send emails to the nominated contact person at your organisation with important info, too.

  • What about GST?

    The participating organisation will receive 100% of funds raised back to their organisation. It is the responsibility of the individual organisation to determine if they are required to be registered for GST. Furthermore, it is the responsibility of the individual organisation to determine if they are liable to report and pay GST on any funds received from the Community Lottery. To assist in the remittance of funds, organisations will need to provide their ABN as part of their application to the Community Lottery.  

  • Can my organisation open an account with People’s Choice?

    Yes! People’s Choice offers an account for both incorporated or unincorporated community groups.
    If your organisation or your members would like to consider opening a Business Account, simply follow the steps by clicking here.

  • 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.

  • How can my organisation apply to sell tickets?

    If you’re new to the Community Lottery, just complete an online application to sell tickets.

  • 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?

  • How do we deposit funds raised?

    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

  • 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.

  • 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.
