Sponsored By The Florida Lottery

Just after the tournament tipped off on March 13th, the Florida Lottery’s overall education contributions jumped to more than $33 billion – an impressive milestone and a huge benefit to education in Florida! This averages out to about $1.1 billion every year for the last 30 years.

This opportunity could mean the difference between loans for higher learning and finishing school debt free.

It gives thousands of students a chance to survive and advance in their education and in life.

These unprecedented contributions have also enabled more than 775,000 students to attend college through the Lottery-funded Bright Futures Scholarship Program.

For the past 30 years, the Florida Lottery has proven itself to be a dedicated and dependable partner to Florida’s students and schools, generating more than $1 billion for Florida’s Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF) for each of the past 16 consecutive years.

While these funds represent only a small portion of the state’s overall education budget, the positive impact is felt in communities from the Panhandle to the Keys.

The Bright Futures Scholarship Program, which is primarily funded by the Florida Lottery, was created in 1997 by the Florida Legislature to assist students in pursuing postsecondary educational and career goals. Since the program’s inception, the Lottery has contributed more than $5 billion to send over 775,000 students to college.
