Registration in the Register of Non-Profit Organisations is a prerequisite for receiving funds through the grassroot allotment programme.
Players using services from Norsk Tipping, may decide that up to five percent of the stake is to go to a particular association or another non-profit organisation.
The player can only choose between those registered in the Register of Non-Profit Organisations. If the association wants to participate in the grassroot allotment programme, tick “Yes” in this field.
Please note the following: If you tick “Yes” in this field, you confirm at the same time that your association is running an activity only at a local or regional level. Association which are umbrella organisations for local associations cannot participate in the grassroot allotment programme.
Associations that do not wish to participate in the grassroot allotment programme, can be reserved by ticking “No” in this field.
In addition, in order to participate in the grassroot allotment programme, the activity being conducted must be of a certain type. The limitations are mostly, but not exclusively, based on the categorisation registered with the Register of Non-Profit Organisations.

Activity within several categories
Organisations with activity within at least one of these categories can participate in the grassroot allotment programme. If the enterprise is registered in one or more categories which cannot participate in the programme, this is of no significance.
Cannot make use of paid advertising
Association receiving grassroot funds cannot use paid advertising to get players to give share to their association, cf. section 9, d of the Grassroot regulations. Nevertheless, all clubs and associations have the opportunity to publish in their own channels, stick up posters and distribute promotional cards and letters.
It is not allowed to establish an association only to get paid grassroot funds, see section 9, e of the Grassroot regulations. In such cases, this kind of association can be required to repay the grassroot shares.
The grassroot allotment programme is managed by Norsk Tipping which can provide you with more information about this arrangement.
