About Us

Our mission at the Kentucky Lottery is clear – we fuel imagination and fund education for ALL Kentuckians. This is done through lottery proceeds funding college scholarship and grant programs with over $4.8 Billion in funding since 1999, including every dime ever awarded in the popular KEES Scholarship program. In order to do this, our plan is based on a structure which represents our operation. 

Kentucky Lottery Strategic Pillars


The most important part of our structure is the top - Proceeds, represented by the scholarship and grant programs we fund. Supporting this top structure are four columns which represent our core elements:

  • Partners – retailers and vendors 
  • People – employees 
  • Principles – integrity
  • Products – games and delivery channels

All of these elements are then supported by the foundation of our organization, Performance (operational excellence).

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion topDIVERSITY-EQUITY-&-INCLUSION

We know that Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) is more than just holidays, programs, and policies. Moreover, we also know that diverse teams achieve great results, but than can only happen if they coexist in an inclusive environment where everyone feels comfortable and safe to express themselves. To help the KLC achieve its goal, we created the following DE&I mission and vision:

MISSION: Our mission is to build a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment where everyone is valued. We're all winners when we embrace our differences.

VISION: We have a high-performing workforce that demonstrates respect, embraces differences, and fosters a feeling of belonging. We leverage our internal diversity to provide products that meet the needs of our customers and communities.

This mission and vision will help anchor and guide us as we seek to promote self-confidence, encourage collaboration within teams, bring awareness about culture differences and ultimately lead to creation of an overall healthy and efficient working environment.
