Missouri Lottery Generates $29.9 Million in Monthly Profits for Education

Profits from Missouri Lottery ticket sales in August have been sent to the Lottery Proceeds Fund for public education. The transfer of $29,984,607 brings the total for FY21, which began July 1, to more than $93.3 million.

Lottery proceeds make up approximately 4% of the state’s funding for public education – an effort shared by local, state and federal governments.

Prior to each fiscal year, the Lottery averages the most recent five years’ profits for a “benchmark” and increases that amount by 1% to arrive at a prudent goal for the next fiscal year.

In FY20, the Lottery generated $333 million for vital education programs, including A+ scholarships. Complete information about Missouri Lottery proceeds, including the specific programs benefited in each county, can be found in the “Where the Money Goes” section at MOLottery.com.
