You can choose any Charity you wish to support
These are just some of the charities that our Members have helped over the years
How It Works
1. Choose a Charity
You choose the charity (or multiple charities) you wish to support and advertise the Charity Lotto to your clients.
Your client chooses to opt-in to the Charity Lotto when they instruct. At the end of the transaction, you add the £10 fee (£1 lotto entry fee and a £9 charity donation) to your invoice and the client enters into the prize draw.
3. Prize Draw
Each month you send us a completed Client Donation List with all client entrants and their donations from the previous month. We claim Gift Aid wherever possible, so each eligible donation is increased from £9 to £11.25 for charity.
4. The Winner is Chosen
Each month we randomly select a winner to receive £500. We contact the client, pay their prize money and make the donation to your chosen charity on your behalf.
What is the Conveyancing Foundation?
The Conveyancing Foundation is a registered not-for-profit charity which has been established to help improve the mental health and wellbeing of those in the property industry as well as raising funds for a number of other charities.
What is the Charity Lotto?
The concept of the Charity Lotto is simple. Your client makes a £10.00 donation on completion of their property transaction to enter the Charity Lotto. The monthly winner receives £500.00.
The cost of entering the competition is £1.00 with a £9.00 charity donation. With added Gift Aid, that’s £11.25 to your chosen charity with every donation.
What happens to the £1.00 entry fee?
The Foundation is a not for profit charity. The £1.00 competition entry fee goes into the lottery prize-winning fund, allowing for multiple winners every month.
Why should I set up the Charity Lotto?
The Charity Lotto has the potential to raise thousands of pounds each month for your partner charities and to engage your team in achieving some spectacular CSR results.
How does the Gift Aid work?
The Conveyancing Foundation is a registered charity, which means that we are able to collect an additional 25% Gift Aid on all donations for UK taxpayers.
We collate all payments monthly, make a Gift Aid application to HMRC, and donate all funds including the Gift Aid to your chosen charity.
Every donation is worth £11.25 – £10.00 entry fee – £1.00 lottery fee – £9.00 donation + Gift Aid at 25% = £11.25.
Can I choose my own charity?
Yes, each company chooses their own charity. The charity need not be a registered charity but we have an obligation to ensure that the monies are donated to charities, organisations or individuals who require help or assistance.
Are there any Data Protection / Confidentiality issues?
No. The Conveyancing Foundation will only ask for the relevant client data to allow us to collect Gift Aid from HMRC and to identify the winner of the competition.
How many of my clients will take part?
Our experience is that 80% of clients take part in the competition. The clients benefit from supporting charity whilst moving home, and also having the opportunity to win £500.
