The Manx Lottery Trust is a Delegated Partner of the UK Big Lottery Fund.


The Manx Lottery Trust is an independent charitable trust, established by a Trust Deed dated 21st May 2008.

The Objects of the Trust are:

  1. the relief of poverty
  2. the relief of elderly persons
  3. the relief of ill or disabled persons
  4. the advancement of education
  5. any other purposes beneficial to the community

The trustees are able to make payments to individuals, associations, groups, or corporate or other bodies, including registered charities, in furtherance of the objects of the trust, provided that the benefit on any payment is for a person or persons ordinarily resident in the Isle of Man. Grants to individuals under objects (a) – (d) present little difficulty but when considering requests that might fall under option (e) the trustees must be satisfied that any payment would be for a purpose beneficial to the community. This is less likely to be the case where a request is to benefit a single individual or a small group of persons.
