Since the first Scratch-off was sold on October 13, 1989, the Hoosier Lottery has provided more than $6.7 billion to the State of Indiana as part of its commitment to build a Stronger, Safer, Smarter Indiana. During the month of May, the Hoosier Lottery will celebrate Hoosier Heroes during National Teacher Appreciation Day (May 3), International Firefighters' Day (May 4), Teacher Appreciation Week (May 2-6) and National Police Week (May 15-21).
For over 30 years, Hoosier Lottery funds have benefited every county throughout Indiana. Contributions have supported the following good causes:
Every year, the Hoosier Lottery contributes $30 million to the Teachers' Retirement Fund and $30 million to local police and firefighters' pensions.
"It is an honor to support Hoosier Heroes in their retirement years. We are so proud of the more than $6.7 billion the Hoosier Lottery has provided to good causes in Indiana since 1989. This would not be possible without the support of our players and retailers across the state," said Hoosier Lottery Executive Director Sarah M. Taylor.
