Yaldi Glasgow Community Lottery
Set up to support community projects in the local area, Glasgow Community Lottery operates on the principle of raising money within the community for the community.
Lotteries are an effective way for causes to raise much-needed funds. By getting more people on board, they don’t just raise funds, they also raise awareness.
Tickets for the lottery cost just £1 a week
When you play Yaldi 60% of your ticket price goes to good causes that benefit your local community (more than double what the National Lottery gives). You can choose the good cause that you want your money to go to or you can choose the Community Fund, proceeds generated from this page go into a general good cause fund, administered by GCVS

Support Local Good Causes
Royston Youth Action are a community organisation based within the NE of Glasgow. All monies raised from our lottery go towards paying for our ‘Quality Time Trips’. These are trips where we take out 2/3 children or young people at a time and spend some quality time with them, checking in on their mental health and wellbeing, while taking them out on a fun day trip. It has helped to raise our profile. I would highly recommend joining up, the process is very easy and there are always staff willing to give advice and support. It is also an ideal way to raise vital funds for your organisation. – Sharon Kelly, Project Manager
Glasgow’s Golden Generation is a Glasgow’s charity for the elderly. We know how important it is for people to know that the money raised locally is spent locally to help people in their own community. We were delighted to join a lottery which we knew our supporters would trust and support. At the moment funds raised from the community lottery have been used to help us provide our emergency Covid-19 service which sees us deliver 350 essential food bags across the city every week. The lottery has been great for us as it is a new source of unrestricted income. – Richard Donald, Chief Executive
Glasgow Disability Alliance (GDA) is controlled and run by disabled people, for disabled people with over 5000 members across Greater Glasgow. We like the fact that the money is split between our cause and other local causes. Joining the lottery has enabled us to promote our work to a wider audience and enabled us to gain supporters that may not have known about us before. If an organisation wants to join the lottery, we’d say go for it. It is a great way to fundraise for your own work, while at the same time, give something back to the wider community. The support from the GCVS team has been great. – Marianne Scobie, Depute CEO
Throughout Include Me 2 Club, we host several funded projects and with the money raised from the Glasgow Lottery initiatives will help contribute towards our core costs and overheads which keeps our main office operating. It has allowed us to pay towards our overheads and core costs which therefore frees up more funds to improve our services and projects. It allows people to donate through a fun and different way to support the charity, whilst also offering those donating to Include Me 2 Club, the chance to win up to £25,000 for just £1 per ticket. – Pippa Smith, Digital Engagement Worker
