Good Causes

Nearly 30 cent from every euro spent on a National Lottery ticket goes into the Good Causes Fund, which supports community projects in the areas of sports, arts, Irish language, youth affairs, health and culture.

Over €6 billion has been raised for the fund since the National Lottery was established in 1987.

€425 million will be spent on Good Cause projects in 2021, part-funded by approximately €250 million raised by the National Lottery according to figures from Minister Michael McGrath.

His Department of Public Expenditure is due to publish a review on the Good Causes Fund some time in the second quarter of 2022.
