The Missouri Lottery today sent $25 million to public education.  The transfer of $25,058,474 is based on October ticket sales and brings the total to education in FY16 to more than $119.5 million.

Since Missouri Lottery sales started in 1986, the Lottery has generated more than $5.2 billion for the state and public education. Programs funded in FY16 include the A+ Scholarship Program, the Foundation Program and Access Missouri. For complete information about Missouri Lottery proceeds, including maps of proceeds by program and by county, see the “Where the $ Goes” section at MOLottery.com.

In addition to providing funds for public education, the Lottery also benefits the state by collecting state taxes on prizes of more than $600. During the past fiscal year, the Lottery added $8.7 million in state tax collections from prize winnings to the General Revenue Fund.
