This Society, pursuant to its licence under the Gambling Act 2003, has distributed net proceeds, for the period 1st July 2008 to 31st December 2008 to the organisations listed below. The basic approved criteria used in allocating this funding is: the Society shall make donations to any charitable, philanthropic, cultural, amateur sports, bona fide youth or educational organization to further the objectives of these groups and any other purpose that is beneficial to the community or any section of it. 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.
