The Dutch Postcode Lottery (Nationale Postcode Loterij) has been raising funds since 1989 to support organisations working towards a fairer and greener world. Fifty percent of the lottery’s annual turnover goes to charity. The lottery has steadily grown to become the biggest charity lottery in the Netherlands and supports 92 non-governmental organisations. Since its founding, the lottery has dispensed over 4.4 billion euros to its beneficiaries.
For 2014, thanks to its 2.5 million participants, who bought more than 4 million lottery tickets collectively in 2014, a total of 312 million euros is distributed to non-governmental organisations.
