Supporting Education

One hundred percent of Ohio Lottery profits helps support K-12, vocational and special education programs in Ohio. Since 1974, the Ohio Lottery has provided more than $32 billion to Ohio’s education programs!

Funding Education

The Ohio Lottery was established pursuant to the Ohio Constitution, Article XV, Section 6, which reads in pertinent part as follows: The General Assembly may authorize an agency of the state to conduct lotteries, to sell rights to participate therein, and to award prizes by chance to participants, provided that the entire net proceeds of any such lottery are paid into a fund of the state treasury that shall consist solely of such proceeds and shall be used solely for the support of elementary, secondary, vocational, and special education programs as determined in appropriations made by the General Assembly.

Pursuant to Ohio Revised Code Section 3770.06 (B), the Director of Budget and Management certifies the transfers to the Lottery Profits for Education Fund.
