Hamburg, 18 April 2023. Since the start of their cooperation in 2020, ZEAL and BildungsChancen have already diverted almost EUR 15 million to civil society causes with their joint lottery products. In the process, the market leader for online lotteries and the promoter of educational projects have already supported 250 charitable projects.
Two lotteries for a good cause
ZEAL and BildungsChancen jointly operate the lotteries freiheit+ and Deutsche Traumhauslotterie, in which fixed sums are donated to selected educational organizations for each ticket. A total of 80 percent of the funding went to selected educational projects run by the shareholders of BildungsChancen, namely Stifterverband, SOS Kinderdörfer weltweit and Deutsche Kinder- und Jugendstiftung. A further 20 percent of the funding went to independent sponsors. A board of trustees decides on the allocation of funds three times a year.
Doing good together
"We are proud of having already generated 15 million euros for social projects together with BildungsChancen," says Helmut Becker, CEO of ZEAL. "The aim of our cooperation has always been to make a valuable contribution to society and to financially support as many educational projects as possible. The fact that we have already been able to support 250 different projects in a very short time with a true record sum pleases us even more."
"Our goal is to support educational projects," says Benedict M. Rey, Managing Director of BildungsChancen. "For this reason, we are proud to be able to support so many educational organizations together with ZEAL and the joint lottery products. We will continue to offer attractive products together to support educational projects in Germany and around the world."
