Lottery Week: The Ohio Lottery's Contribution to Education

Each month, the Ohio Lottery contributes 100% of profits generated from the sale of Ohio Lottery games to the Lottery Profits Education Fund.

For almost 46 years, the Ohio Lottery has supported education by offering Ohioans entertaining gaming experiences, with a goal of maximizing profits for use in public schools, K-12. 

Primary and secondary education is funded by state, local and federal sources. A team player in that effort, the Ohio Lottery contributes about 10% of annual school funding.

Over these many years, Ohioans who enjoy our games have allowed us to contribute more than $26 billion to the Lottery Profits Education Fund.  

We also champion teachers and students through the Ohio Lottery’s Partners in Education Program, allowing all those with a stake in our schools to acknowledge students and teachers in their community. They do the hard work.

There are many working parts to make education work.  Raising funds is our charge, and we salute the community-wide effort to support students and teachers throughout Ohio.
