How We Help
THE VETERANS' LOTTERY & THE VETERANS' FOUNDATION
Many veterans charities struggle to raise sufficient funding to support British Armed Forces' veterans in need. The Veterans' Lottery and the Veterans' Foundation have been created to establish a new and nationwide source of funding to help these charities.
The Veterans' Lottery will not only give supporters the chance to win prizes, but more importantly it will provide financial support for the Veterans' Foundation. The Veterans' Foundation will disburse funds to frontline veterans' charities.
The objectives of the Veterans' Foundation are as follows:
To assist people who are serving or who have served in the British armed forces and their dependants by advancing any lawful charitable purpose at the discretion of the trustees and in particular, but not exclusively, to make grants to other charities who assist serving and former members of the armed forces and their dependants who are in need.
We will support projects that:
- Reduce homelessness
- Increase employment
- Provide welfare and medical support
- Increase confidence and social integration
- Reduce dependence on drugs and alcohol
- Support other charitable activities that may be needed
The Veterans' Foundation have established as simple an application process as sensible to put minimum strain on charities' usually limited staff and this process will be fair, legal and regulated.
The board of trustees will oversee the Veterans' Foundation and will allocate money to deserving charities.
An executive team will run the day-to-day activity of the Veterans' Foundation and MCLS Management Ltd will run the fully regulated Veterans' Lottery.
