Missouri Lottery Makes First Fiscal Year Public Education Fund Transfer

The Missouri Lottery made its first transfer of fiscal year 2018 Friday by sending $18.9 million in profits to public education. The July transfer of $18,940,088 is based on sales in June.

Since Missouri Lottery sales started in 1986, the Lottery has generated more than $5.7 billion for the state and public education. Annual Lottery proceeds comprise about 4 percent of the state’s funding for public education – an effort shared by local, state and federal governments.
