Novamedia/Postcode Lotteries is a social enterprise that seeks to contribute to a fairer and greener world. It sets up charity lotteries worldwide using a unique postcode format.
In 1989 the Dutch founders started Postcode Loterij in the Netherlands, a lottery based on postcodes with a subscription-based model that guarantees sustainable fundraising for good causes. Postcode lotteries have now also been set up in Sweden, Great Britain, Germany and Norway.
The Postcode Lotteries are one of the safest games of chance worldwide. Novamedia’s charity lottery formats – with 13 million players in 5 countries now - have led to a total of more than 11 billion euros donated to charities, since the start in 1989.
Novamedia/Postcode Lotteries is the world’s 3rd largest private charity donor. We provide long term, unrestricted funding. Trust-based philanthropy ensures maximum impact.
We believe the world benefits from strong social organisations. There is no change without them.
