Benefits and Beyond
Lysol, a longstanding partner of the National PTA, is committed to promoting healthy habits for children – not just at home, but at school, too. We created our HERE for Healthy Schools initiative to help curb the spread of illness in the classroom. By educating on healthy habits, funding research, and working with partners, we’re sharing our mission to help kids miss less school so they are able to learn, grow and thrive. Together, we can make sure children don’t miss out on the importance of HERE. Click here for interactive lesson plans and information on how to curb the spread of illness in classrooms.

In FY19, the Virginia Lottery recorded its biggest year yet, with sales reaching over $2.29 billion and profits totaling nearly $650 million. The record profits represent a seven percent increase over last year and are equivalent to about $1.78 million per day for public education in the Commonwealth generated by the Lottery. Here’s Governor Northam’s official announcement.
Approximately 10 percent of Virginia’s education budget comes from the Lottery. Virginia’s Constitution requires that all Virginia Lottery profits be deposited in the Lottery Proceeds Fund, from which the General Assembly makes appropriations in support of K-12 public education programs. Programs supported include school breakfast, K-3 class-size reduction and early reading intervention, to name a few.

We are the largest 529 plan in the nation and have been helping families dream, save and achieve their education goals for over 20 years. However, many families still aren’t aware of how a 529 plan can help them reach their goals.

In just one hour (or less, sessions can be tailored to your needs), you can learn how to save for college, apprenticeships, private k-12 tuition, and even pay back student loans while taking advantage of tax-free earnings and a VA state tax deduction.
