She is donating $150,000 to Girls Inc., an organization that provides "thousands of girls with life-changing experiences and solutions to the unique challenges girls face", and $33,000 each to three chapters of End 68 Hours of Hunger, a not-for profit group that battles hunger students experience outside the free meals provided during school.

"She is a longtime resident of New Hampshire and is an engaged community member", the woman's attorney wrote in court documents.

Meanwhile this week, United States news outlets reported on "Jane Doe", the victor of the largest Powerball jackpot in history.

The winner's charitable plans will also be announced, including a major donation made in support of New Hampshire nonprofits.

TheLotter.com, a messenger service which legally purchases lottery tickets for overseas players, has helped people win $115 million Cdn. since 2002: late 2015 an Iraqi client won the $6.4 million U.S. jackpot in Oregon.


The woman chose to collect the winnings in a lump sum of $352 million before taxes and representatives from the law firm Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., accepted the giant check from the New Hampshire Lottery Commission on behalf of the Good Karma Family trust. The New Hampshire Lottery Commission approved the payment to a trust the woman set up.

After collecting her winnings on Wednesday, the mystery victor promised to donate $50m to charity, report USA media.

"While we respect this player's desire to remain anonymous, state statutes and lottery rules clearly dictate protocols", said the New Hampshire Lottery Executive Director Charlie McIntyre in a statement in February.

"There are countless stories of other lottery winners who have suffered significantly after receiving their money, many of which could have been avoided if the winners' identities had not been published", the lawsuit states.
