This past weekend, we all observed Veterans Day to honor and remember the service of our nation’s veterans. Here at the Iowa Lottery, this time of year it also calls to mind the proceeds we’ve been able to raise to help Iowa veterans and their families.
At the end of October, we made the lottery’s $2.5 million annual transfer to the Veterans Trust Fund for the current fiscal year. And that brings the grand total that we’ve raised for the cause to $24.9 million. Today, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of all Iowa Lottery games is dedicated to the Veterans Trust Fund.
If you’re looking for more information about the Trust Fund or how to apply for assistance from it, visit the Iowa Department of Veterans Affairs website. Click on the “Benefits” tab at the top of that page to learn more.
