Working with you

To build a better WA together with you, we need to understand what your project is and how it will impact the community.  

Making grants

New needs and opportunities are emerging all the time. Flexibility is a principle that guides our grant making. We will work with you to ensure that your application best reflects your idea and the benefit to the community, with priority areas and outcomes which relate to the Community Investment Framework.

We only recommend sound, value-for-money proposals to our Board that have a likelihood of delivering benefits for the WA community. Talking with you and your community provides us with a sound understanding of the specific need and how a grant will be best used. From the grant development process through to Premier approval, our work is conducted fairly and impartially.

Our team is based at Lotterywest’s Head Office in Subiaco, Perth, and make regular visits to the regional and remote WA as well as around the metropolitan area. From Esperance to Kununurra, we have someone who understands your local community needs and is excited to help you to achieve your goals

We are passionate about grant making. Talk with us about your grant idea We will work with you to find the best possible approach to address the need in your community.

Your local Lotterywest store could be just around the corner.


Our grant funds come from the sales of our lottery games achieved through the hard work of over 500 retailers throughout the State.

For every dollar they make, Lotterywest retailers add on commission and return 60 cents back to players as prizes. About one third of the dollar is returned to the public, either as grants directly managed by us or as statutory grant allocations, through the State Government, to health, arts and sport.  The remaining cents are for Lotterywest operating costs including the administration of grants.
