The Florida Lottery's mission is to maximize revenues for the enhancement of public education in Florida. With this focus, the Florida Lottery has not only kept its promise as a committed partner in education, but has also operated as a distinguished and outstanding business enterprise.
In fiscal year 2015-2016, the Florida Lottery transferred $1.66 billion to the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund. For the fourteenth time in Florida Lottery history the agency surpassed the billion-dollar mark in a single year. The Lottery's total contribution since start-up is more than $30 billion. Although this contribution is only a small part of the state's overall education budget, the impact of the Florida Lottery on public education flows from community to community.
