Building the Trust


Since 1994, the Trust Lands Administration has generated more than $1.6 billion for Utah’s public schools, and has worked to grow Utah’s permanent funds from $84 million to approximately $3 billion today.

This Permanent School Fund, a perpetual endowment for public schools, benefits students today and tomorrow. Today’s students receive annual distributions from the fund while the balance grows in perpetuity. The Trust Lands Administration aims to make the fund an increasingly significant source of funding for Utah schools.
