Hanfod Cymru is a grant-making charity established in spring 2017. The source of Hanfod Cymru’s grants is the ticket sales of the new not-for-profit community lottery, Loteri Cymru.

At least 20% of the income from Loteri Cymru’s ticket are transferred to Hanfod Cymru to be distributed to registered charities in Wales. Hanfod Cymru operates independently and has its own Board of Trustees, which operates independently of Loteri Cymru, which oversees the weekly draw.
