Rutgers WPF annually receives support from the Dutch Postcode Lottery and its participants. In 2011 Rutgers WPF can count on a contribution of 900,000 Euro. The amount is derived from the 2010 proceeds of the Dutch Postcode Lottery.
The Postcode Lottery helps!
The Dutch Postcode Lottery is the largest charity lottery in the Netherlands. Fifty percent of the money from the tickets sold goes to charity organisations working in the areas of (natural) environment, development aid, human rights and social cohesion.
Largest Dutch Charity Lottery
Since 1989 the Dutch Postcode Lottery has accumulated funds to support organisations that work towards a fairer, greener world. Fifty percent of the total investment is reserved for charities. The lottery has developed into the largest charity lottery of the Netherlands and supports 81 non-governmental organisations. The Dutch Postcode Lottery is part of the National Charity Lottery N.V Holding which also includes the BankGiro Lottery and the Sponsor Bingo Lottery.
The Postcode Lottery and its participants
Thanks to the 2.5 million participants of the Postcode Lottery, 270 million euro has been divided over 81 non-governmental organisations for 2010. Annually thousands of participants win prizes such as millions of euros, televisions, cars and bicycles. The ‘street prize’ is awarded every week; every month the SuperPostcodePrize of one million euro is awarded and twice a year whole neighbourhoods win during the ‘Belter Presentations’ (Kanjeruitreikingen in Dutch). Popular TV programmes such as ‘One vs 100’, ‘What do the Dutch think?’ and ‘Postcode Lottery Millions’ draw many viewers.

In 2011 the Dutch Postcode Lottery announced that it would further support Rutgers WPF and dance4life international with an extra contribution of approximately 1.3 million euro. This money is meant for an educational project for the fight against AIDS in five countries in Asia. The Rutgers WPF field offices in Pakistan and Indonesia are carrying out this project, as well as the partner organisation in Thailand.
