Launching today, The Éire Lottery is a new registered charity initiative that will bring a much needed financial boost to charities who have found their revenue streams devastated by as much as 35% over the past 4 months.
It couldn’t be simpler!

With the operational costs sponsored, All of the funds raised by Éire Lottery (after prizes) will be distributed directly to charities.
The charities include Threshold Ireland, The Irish Hospice Foundation, The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation and The Marie Keating Foundation. Each of these charities have continued to deliver vital front-line services to those most in need over the past 4 months, despite experiencing an enormous loss of income.
A unique bonus for consumers, if you win the 1st prize, Éire Lottery ask you pick your own favourite charity & will give another €1,000 directly to that Charity – it’s called the Winner’s Choice Charity.
Welcoming this new initiative, here is what Jack & Jill CEO Carmel Doyle had to say:
“We are facing a projected shortfall this year of €500,000 due to COVID-19 but we must continue to provide our vital home nursing care for the 340 young children with complex medical conditions under our wing, including end of life support. We are lucky to be a charity partner with Éire Lottery and the monies raised will make a big difference to the families we support. Thank you.”
