About the People First Community Lottery

Originally known as the People's Choice Community Lottery, the People First Community Lottery gives local sporting clubs, schools, charities, volunteer groups and other not-for-profit community groups around Australia the opportunity to raise funds and achieve fundraising goals. The People First Community Lottery has helped to raise more than $22 million for community groups since its inception in 1984.

People First Bank, along with our proud business and media partners, facilitate the People First Community Lottery’s administration, advertising, prizes and tickets so that community groups participating can pocket 100% of every $2 ticket sold!

Thank you to all of our generous Business Partners who help make the People First Community Lottery possible. Read more about our Business Partners here.
