This Society, pursuant to its licence under the Gambling Act 2003, has distributed net proceeds, for the period 1st January 2012 to 30th June 2012 to the organisations listed below. The basic approved criteria used in allocating this funding: the Society shall only consider donations to any charitable, philanthropic, cultural, amateur sporting, bona fide youth or educational organisation and any other purpose that is beneficial to any community or any section of it that are based in the provincial area which this Society operates its class 4 gaming machines. No grants shall be made to any party which will resolve in any commercial advantage, either directly or indirectly, to any member site of the Bendigo Valley Sports and Charity Foundation. The Trustees prioritise funding so that it is allocated fairly based on their impartial assessment of the needs of the applicant and the value to any part of the community. The Trustees must consider prior grants, efforts by the applicants to maximise the use of any funding allocated and the applicant’s efforts to conduct self-motivated fund-raising.

As a result of these criteria the funds have been allocated to:
Community, Arts, Cultural and Educational Organisations: 51.33%, Sporting Organisations: 48.47%
