Ellen MacArthur Foundation (charity number 1130306) (“EMF”) operates its own society lottery, licensed and regulated by the Gambling Commission, for the sole purpose of raising funds to support our mission.

How it works

EMF’s society lottery is regulated by the Gambling Commission under society lottery licence numbers: 000-056740-N-332591-001 and 000-056740-R-332590-001. The responsible persons are Joanne Bootle and Jon Ely.

Our lottery is promoted and managed for us by our external lottery manager, People's Postcode Lottery (Company Number 04862732)
