Making a Difference in Washington State

Since 1982, the Washington Lottery has generated more than $4.5 billion in support of several important state programs, including providing much-needed funds for the Washington Opportunity Account (WOPA). In FY21, WOPA received $185.7 million from the lottery, enough to pay for college tuition for more than 18,000 Washingtonians. It also provided approximately 25 percent of the annual budget for the state’s Early Childhood Education and Support Program, which provides critical services to more than 15,000 children at 440 locations in Washington.

Washington Lottery Beneficiary Fact

The Washington Lottery is very proud to be a financial supporter of the state’s Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP). The $40 million annual investment the Lottery makes in ECEAP has a long-lasting impact. Children who participate in ECEAP are more likely to be ready for kindergarten than nonparticipants, and those who participate five or more hours a day are especially prepared in reading and math.[i] Children in state-funded prep programs like ECEAP see long-lasting positive effects, including increased grade-level progress, high school graduation and college enrollment.[ii]
