10 TABCORP HOLDINGS LIMITED Community As an integral part of the racing, gaming and entertainment industry, Tabcorp's businesses play a substantial role in supporting the communities in which they operate. The Tabcorp Group has a number of programs and services in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland which provide donations, partnerships, sponsorships, employee engagement opportunities and in kind benefits to a range of charities, not for profit groups and local community organisations. These activities are reviewed regularly to enhance the employee experience, meet the changing needs of these community groups, and align with the strategies and priorities of Tabcorp's businesses. Tabcare Following a review of Tabcorp's community support strategy and investment programs during the year, and in consideration of the organisational changes and business priorities following the demerger, the Tabcorp Group launched its new community engagement program, called Tabcare, in July 2012. Tabcare enables employees to contribute their energies and passions through a volunteering program and a matched fundraising program. Eligible employees are offered one day's volunteer leave annually which they can use at their nominated local community non-profit organisation or with other employees at one of the community organisations with which Tabcorp has established a partnership: FareShare and Riding Develops Abilities in Victoria; Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopters and Conservation Volunteers in New South Wales; and The Pyjama Foundation in Queensland. Through the fundraising program, Tabcorp encourages teams of employees to raise money for registered charities, where Tabcorp will match any funds raised up to $10,000 per charitable organisation to enable the money to be shared around. Tabcorp has dedicated up to $200,000 in donations for matched fundraising activities in this financial year. Community partnerships During the year, Tabcorp's employees, businesses and brands contributed a total of approximately $1 million of voluntary funding to local communities and charitable organisations. This included employee volunteering and support services through Tabcorp's ROAR program: a partnership with the Tigers in the Community Foundation, a non-profit charitable organisation associated with the Richmond Football Club, helping to deliver community programs in inner Melbourne. Also, through Tabcorp's partnership with Greyhound Racing Victoria, the TAB Sportsbet Great Chase series delivered funds to community groups, with Wintringham Community Services receiving $5,000 in the final event of the series. Other activities included the provision of Sky Channel advertising, sponsoring and partnering with local community organisations, and supporting employees with fundraising events. Other contributions In addition, Tabcorp's businesses contribute significant funding which is utilised by governments to support many services and projects throughout the community. During the year, Tabcorp's businesses contributed: ■ $1,121.9 million in taxes on gambling, including gaming levies and State community benefit funds; and; ■ $157.0 million in income taxes paid and payable. Major community services and facilities, such as roads, hospital and health facilities and other community infrastructures benefit from the funds generated by Tabcorp's businesses.
