Every time you play a Lottery game, your dollar helps support various statewide projects and programs. Jobs are created, schools are supported, parks are maintained and watersheds are enhanced.

State parks are a special place where people play, picnic, camp, rest, hike, renew, and everything in between. They are an everyday reminder of the things that make Oregon great, and their very existence is a testament to what we collectively value. That's why Oregonians chose for Lottery funds to help support our state parks.
On April 25, 1985, the Oregon Lottery sold its first game, the Pot of Gold Scratch-it. Since then, Lottery funds have helped every community in Oregon fund local projects from sprucing up main streets to funding new businesses, providing scholarships and repairing streams for healthy salmon.
The Oregon Lottery is the proud presenter of Oregon’s Teacher of the Year as well as a valued partner of the Oregon Department of Education. Currently, 57% of Oregon Lottery profits go to Oregon’s Pre-K-Higher Education public schools to help pay teachers’ salaries, build and repair schools, purchase much needed textbooks, computers, equipment and support other essential services. From pre-kindergarten to state universities, from textbooks to teachers’ salaries, Lottery funds help support classrooms and the future stewards of Oregon.
