LOTTERY TRANSFERS $17.1 MILLION TO EDUCATION

Story Photo The Missouri Lottery today sent $17.1 million to the Lottery Proceeds Fund for public education. Today’s monthly proceeds transfer of $17,173,415 is based on ticket sales in September, bringing the total proceeds for fiscal year 2004 to more than $77 million.

To date, more than $2 billion in Missouri Lottery proceeds have been transferred to the state of Missouri, including education, since the Lottery started in January 1986.  Approximately 27.5 cents of every dollar spent playing the Lottery goes to public education programs in Missouri. The Missouri Lottery’s contribution to public education is about 3.5 percent of education’s total annual funding. Each year, the Legislature appropriates Lottery proceeds to various education programs. For a complete list of education programs funded, visit the Lottery’s Web site at www.molottery.com.
