Discover our managed charity lottery service

Our nation loves weekly lottery. As charity lottery providers here at Woods Valldata, we have seen lotteries in the charity sector go from strength to strength, with sales estimated to reach more than £9.4bn by 2024 – but why is it such an attractive proposition? 

For the supporter… 

Donating through charity lottery is a relatively low monthly expense and there is a lot of opportunity around the prize fund and number of opportunities to win. Plus, as a regular gift, the supporter doesn’t have to do a lot of work in order to play. 

For your charity… 

A weekly lottery means a monthly commitment that’s relatively stable, the opportunity to be creative with the product and lots of potential for donor acquisition, using lottery as an entry point to support your charitable cause. 

Three winning ways – choose your perfect fit lottery.

We know one size never fits all. That’s why we have three levels of lottery available to choose from: Affinity, Aspire and Advantage. 

Three different ways of running a lottery with all the support, experience and expertise you need from off-the-shelf and ready-to-go; to owned by you and managed by us; to fully bespoke and offering complete freedom in how you run and grow your lottery.  

These three different approaches have been designed to perfectly match the diverse scale, needs and ambitions of today’s charities and causes. 

Each product is packed with different features, attributes and benefits – and as your External Lottery Manager, we’re here to help you choose the right way forward for your charity. 

Discover your perfect fit lottery… 

Lottery success with minimal risk
