During a conference in San Diego ca. 2008, a nonprofit CEO in The Netherlands mentioned to me the highly successful Postcode Lottery in Europe, from which his nonprofit was receiving funding. Having worked in the nonprofit field in… · More America for many years and knowing from traditional funders that as nonprofits proliferate in America, there is more competition for funding: we need new funding sources. Simultaneously, our Texas Lottery continues to come under fire for being sleazy, while the Postcode Lottery in Europe is high minded and it has a more ethical image. The aim is NOT to reinvent the wheel, but to engage the founders and managers of the Postcode Lottery in Europe to come to Texas and see if some kind of Texas Postcode Lottery could be implemented. It will require legislative work, review of existing laws, greater understanding about how the European programs work (staffing and ongoing management), consultation with the Texas Lottery Commission, and how to market to an entire populace to get the citizenry to buy-in (literally). Some initial funding is needed to start researching the concept for America, however.
