Every time you visit a park, walk on a trail, or paddle a kayak course, you’re seeing Colorado Lottery dollars at work. More than $2.3 billion has been returned to the state for parks, recreation, open space, conservation education, and wildlife projects since the Lottery started in 1983.
Profits from the sale of Lottery products are mandated to be distributed according to this formula:
- 10% to The Colorado Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation
- 40% to the Conservation Trust Fund
- 50% to the Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) Trust Fund (GOCO funds are capped at $35 million, adjusted for inflation, and funds in excess of $35 million go to the Colorado Department of Education, Public School Capital Construction Assistance Fund)
