The Chance to Connect society lottery forms part of the Scottish Children’s Lottery, a fundraising initiative launched in 2016.
Despite its name, the Scottish Children’s Lottery is not just one lottery, but is actually made up of four individual society lotteries. Each lottery raises funds for a separate grant-giving charity that promotes the welfare of Scotland’s children across a spectrum of good causes, from from pre-school and study support, to employability and community engagement among the young.
Chance to Connect is one such charity and, alongside the other three, takes it in turn to be the designated society lottery promoted under the Scottish Children’s Lottery on a weekly rotational basis. Chance to Connect’s designated good causes are the beneficiaries of the funds distributed by the scheme.
All four charities receive the same fixed percentage from the proceeds of the Scottish Children’s Lottery, with each assured a guaranteed 20p from every £1 ticket sold.
