    The Texas Lottery Supports Texas Education. Since 1997*, the Texas Lottery has contributed $18 billion to the Foundation School Fund, which supports public education in Texas. In FY 2015, the Texas Lottery transferred $1.225 billion, its single largest annual contribution to date, to the Foundation School Fund.

    The Texas Lottery Supports Texas Veterans. In 2009, legislation was passed directing the Texas Lottery to offer a scratch ticket game benefiting the Texas Veterans Commission Fund for Veterans Assistance (FVA). Since that time, the Texas Lottery has contributed more than $52.1 million for veterans programs. The FVA makes grants available to eligible charitable organizations, local government agencies, and Veterans Service Organizations that provide direct services to

    Texas veterans and their families. More than 90 percent of the revenue contributed to the fund is derived from the sales of the Texas Lottery veterans games. The first game was introduced in FY 2010 and since that time, additional games have been launched with the proceeds supporting the fund. In FY 2015, $13.1 million was transferred to the Texas Veterans Commission.

    The Texas Lottery Supports Other State Programs. Other Texas Lottery funds, such as unclaimed prizes, contribute to other causes as authorized by the Texas Legislature such as the multicategorical teaching hospital at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston.

    Since 1992, the Texas Lottery has generated more than $24 billion in revenue for good causes in the state of Texas, including education, veterans services and other important state programs. Through strict

    adherence to our vision, mission and core values, the Texas Lottery is dedicated to ensuring that these benefits continue. The chart below provides a breakdown of an average dollar spent on lottery

    games and illustrates Where the Money Goes, based on FY 2015 financial results.

    * Prior to 1997, the proceeds were allocated to the General RevenueFund and were contributed for the benefit of all state programs.
