BankGiro Loterij is an important player in maintaining and enhancing the quality of cultural life in the Netherlands. Cultural institutions in the Netherlands will receive more than 62.5 million euros this year, thanks to around 600,000 participants in BankGiro Loterij. 66 cultural organisations will receive an award. The amounts include both ongoing annual contributions and one-off payments. For example institutions are assisted when purchasing significant artworks which will form a special addition to their collection, or when carrying out renovations. BankGiro Loterij is part of the Nationale Holding Goede Doelen Loterijen, which also includes the Nationale Postcode Loterij and VriendenLoterij.
