Where The Money Goes
Since the Lottery's inception in 1982, our total contribution has been over $1.8 billion to the District's General Fund. The D.C. Lottery's annual transfer to the General Fund remains a vital component in aiding the city's economy, thereby benefiting all residents of the District of Columbia, as well as suburban commuters and tourists. The General Fund supports services such as education, recreation and parks, public safety, housing, and senior and child services. The D.C. Lottery directly benefits our players by paying out more than 50 percent of annual sales in prize money, which totals more than $3 billion to date. We also directly benefit local businesses by providing commissions to retailers licensed to sell D.C. Lottery games and offering contracting opportunities.
Over the past 30 years, the Charitable Games Division of the D.C.
Lottery has issued more than 3,000 licenses to the organizations that
have raised more than $123 million for food, education, housing, health
care, and other basic needs and services for residents of the District
