EDUCATION

Lottery funds make change.

More than $1 billion in Lottery funds goes to California public education each year. Here’s a quick breakdown of where the money goes:

  • 63% of Lottery funds are spent on salaries and benefits for educators.  This money helps school districts fund class-size reduction programs, hire classroom aids, nurses, school psychologists, and specialists
  • 20% of Lottery funds are used to buy instructional materials for the classroom; including textbooks, classroom supplies, computers and software, library books and laboratory equipment
  • 17% of Lottery funds are used to support other programs and services

Unclaimed Prizes Given to California’s Schools.

Unclaimed prizes remaining after the claim period expires always go to supporting California’s public schools. As of the end of FY 2012-13, a total of over $770 million in unclaimed prizes has been awarded to education.
