Our Finances

Annual grants are funded through the proceeds of the Nebraska Lottery, meaning that people who enjoy the fun and excitement of the Lottery also know they are helping keep the state's land, air and water clean for future generations. Forty-four and one-half percent of the money remaining after the payment of prizes and operating expenses and the initial transfer to the Compulsive Gamblers Assistance Fund shall be transferred to the Nebraska Environmental Trust Fund to be used as provided in the Nebraska Environmental Trust Act.

Because we manage these funds carefully, and are able to achieve cost-savings through the support of the agencies represented on our board, the annual operating expenses of the Nebraska Environmental Trust have averaged less than 3% of total income since 1994.
