Participate in the Community Lottery

 

Register your community group here

The People’s Choice Community Lottery has helped to raise more than $20 million for community groups since its inception in 1984. Local not-for-profits, schools, volunteers groups, sporting clubs and more groups have an opportunity to achieve fundraising goals. 

There is no cost to be involved as we facilitate the Community Lottery's administration, advertising and prize so 100% of every $2 ticket sold goes directly back to your community group.

It's 100% online so groups can sell tickets 24/7, reach more people across Australia and ticket bundles are available for bulk ticket purchases - saving time and better for the environment than paper tickets.

Hear from the Seacliff Surf Life Saving Club

Seacliff Surf Life Saving Club are a surf life saving club located along the coastline of Adelaide, South Australia.  They have over 700 members, who patrol, train, and compete for the club. The People’s Choice Community Lottery provides them much needed funds to supply their members with lifesaving equipment to help keep their community safe. 

Last year they participated in their 11th People’s Choice Community Lottery. They have always had a positive experience, and this continued with the move to selling 100% of tickets online. 

Seacliff Surf Life Saving Club embraced the move to online tickets and this led to them having their most successful year ever.  

“Last year we found it quite easy to sell tickets. We sold more than any other year.” Said Vicki Gregory, Seacliff SLSC Chair of Fundraising team.

They used a range of methods to sell tickets online and have shared some tips to help other clubs hit their fundraising goals.

Get Social

They advertised on the clubs Facebook, Instagram and website. To help people purchase tickets they provided step by step instructions on how to find communitylottery.com.au and how to purchase tickets online for their club.   

Go Mobile

Not only were Seacliff patrolling the beaches to keep their community safe they used iPads to patrol the beach for ticket purchasers.  Using iPads allowed them to engage with members, visitors, and friends to help them purchase tickets.

Dedicated team

One of their key learnings from their past experiences with the People’s Choice Community Lottery is the need for a dedicated team. “This ensures the momentum keeps up and that advertising campaigns within your club are consistent and evident for your members.” Vicki said.  

All this amazing activity resulted in Seacliff Surf Life Saving Club having their most successful year ever and they raised over $8,000! Vicki’s advice for any community group looking to participate in the People’s Choice Community Lottery is “Just do it. There’s always support from People’s Choice and we have always had very successful outcomes.”
