Prior to 1997, proceeds that were not used for prize payouts and to help sustain the operational aspects of the lottery, were given to the General Fund for the state. After 1997, all of these proceeds and the money accumulated in the general fund from lottery proceeds was then switched over to another account to help fund public education in the state of Texas through the Foundation School Fund. More than $12 billion has been donated to this fund since 1997. In 2010, the proceeds will be given to the Fund for Veterans Assistance to help aid the veterans of the state.
