FDJ takes action to promote French heritage

What is our “Heritage Mission”?

Mission Patrimoine” (Heritage Mission) is a scratch game and lottery developed by FDJ in partnership with the French Heritage Foundation and supported by the Ministry of Culture. It contributes to the protection of French heritage sites in all their forms. 

Since 2018, we have raised over €150 million to support heritage projects. This money would usually have gone to the French government, but with this initiative, they have decided to donate it to the Heritage Foundation. The 2023 edition of Heritage Mission games saw €28 million raised. 

2023’s Heritage Mission was available in FDJ’s 30,000 points of sale, on www.fdj.fr, and through the FDJ app. It was made up of various draws and a scratch card with up to €1.5 million of winnings.
