Jane 'Dough' accepts $560M lottery jackpot

The organisation Girls Inc was given $150,000 and checks of $33,000 each were dispersed to chapters of the End 68 Hours of Hunger in cities across New Hampshire.

"She is a longtime resident of New Hampshire and is an engaged community member", the woman's attorney wrote in court documents. The commission approved the payment to a trust the woman set up.

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

The woman filed a lawsuit against the state to remain anonymous, but lawyers were allowed to pick up a lump sum of $352m in Powerball winnings.

"She wishes to continue this work and the freedom to walk into a grocery store or attend public events without being known or targeted as the victor of a half-billion dollars", the complaint said.

The prize amount has grown steadily since the January 6 Powerball drawing.

A New Hampshire judge ruled February 17 that the jackpot money can go into a temporary trust while the court decides if it will allow the woman to "maintain her privacy and to have the trustee of a designated trust be the public face of the winning ticket".

According to "lottery lawyer" Jason Kurland, only six USA states now allow lottery winners to remain anonymous: Delaware, Kansas, Maryland, North Dakota, South Carolina and Ohio.

"We are tremendously happy for our victor and we wish her and her family all the best".

A New Hampshire woman who won $560 million in the Powerball lottery from a ticket she bought at a store in the Reeds Ferry section of Merrimack, New Hampshire got a wire transfer for her winnings, but her legal bid to remain unidentified is not yet resolved.

Executive director of the state lottery Charlie McIntyre said the interaction between the anonymous victor and the lottery office hasn't been adversarial.
