Proceeds from every dollar spent on Florida Lottery tickets help provide educational funding in the state of Florida. Whether it's Bright Futures scholarships, better books, technology for schools, or bonds for school construction, the proceeds from Florida Lottery ticket sales are transferred to the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF) and appropriated by the Florida Legislature.

We recognize that the Florida Lottery has an important obligation to keep players informed about contributions to the state's public education system. To this end, we openly produce and publicize reports and information each year to highlight our transfers to the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF), our operations and financial position. You can find our most recent Annual Reports here, including transfer amounts to the EETF, county-by-county breakdowns of Florida Lottery funds and where they are going, and a variety of other financial and operational details.
