On your marks... and go!

Through Lotterywest’s statutory support to the Department of Sport and Recreation, $5,088,390 was allocated to the Western Australian Institute of Sport (WAIS) last financial year to help Western Australia’s peak high performance athletes.

“The ongoing support provided to WAIS through Lotterywest continues to help WA athletes achieve success on the world sporting stage,” says Steve Lawrence, Director of WAIS.

The world-class facilities at WAIS’s newly completed High Performance Service Centre in Mt Claremont have helped support over 30 athletes onto the Australian Olympic Team. They also supported more than 10 WA athletes onto the Australian Paralympic Team in Brazil.       

What does my money support in WA?

Every year you help Lotterywest make almost 900 grants totalling over $115 million dollars. Which means that you're helping community organisations provide services, support and inspiration to people all over Western Australia. And the best part? All the money that you help give to our community comes from having fun playing the games! So why not pick up a ticket today and keep WA winning?
