In 2016, Free Press Unlimited is receiving another continuous contribution of €500.000 from the Dutch Postcode Lottery (Nationale Postcode Loterij). An extra €500.000 was made available for an extension of two years of the Postcode Lottery Fund for journalists.
Since April 2011, Free Press Unlimited is supported by the Dutch Postcode Lottery (Nationale Postcode Loterij). Earlier cooperation was initiated and realised by Free Voice, one of the organisations that constitutes Free Press Unlimited since the merger in 2011. Free Voice received €1.000.000 in 2011 from the Postcode Lottery for its work in 2010 and a total of €9.1 million between 1997 and 2015.
Through participating in the Postcode Lottery, you contribute with 50% of your investment to make the work of Free Press Unlimited and 94 other charities possible. The Nationale Postcode Loterij is the largest charity lottery in the Netherlands and supports projects and organizations that strive towards building a more just and sustainable society. Next to financial aid, the lottery is active in publicity work and makes partner organisations and their projects known to society. Over the years, the Postcode Lottery has given more than €4.7 billion to charity organisations since its inception in 1989.
Through publicity as well as financial and moral support, the Dutch Postcode Lottery reaffirms the commitment to the work of Free Press Unlimited.
