Making a difference

Thanks to West Australians playing our games, we’re able to support the things that make WA a great place to live. Last financial year alone, $260 million was raised for the community.

This offers us exciting opportunities to help make WA a better place for everyone. So if that looks like something you’d like to explore, take a look at the range of grant types or simply call us to talk about your idea. 

Community Events

We love supporting events that bring the Western Australian community together to enhance social and cultural connections and reduce isolation.

Community Legacy

Do you have an idea that can be the catalyst for lasting and significant change, that could transform our community and that could benefit future generations?

Community Spaces and Places

We are interested in supporting community spaces, places and buildings that help the diversity of Western Australians to actively engage in community life.


Need the right tools to get the job done? We have grants designed to help get the necessary equipment in place to support your community.


Good ideas are behind every project that makes our community a better place. Project grants can assist you in testing or trialing an initiative.

Apply for a Lotterywest grant

We receive around 1,000 grant applications each year and aim to support as many of those as we possibly can.

We provide grants for not-for-profit organisations or local government authorities. Not-for-profit organisations can range from small unincorporated groups to large multi-functional organisations. Grants can support charitable or benevolent purposes. Visit our how to apply section where you’ll find a broad overview of who we support, and how we support them. Hopefully this will help you get your application up and running!
