HotelCare was established in 1999 as an on-going initiative of AHA (Vic) to raise and distribute funds to worthy charities and organisations and to advance the overall interests of the pub and hotel sector in Victoria.

HotelCare was established in 1999 as an on-going initiative of AHA (Vic) to raise and distribute funds to worthy charities and organisations and to advance the overall interests of the pub and hotel sector in Victoria.

HotelCare is funded on behalf of all AHA (Vic) members through contributions by members with gaming machines.

Since its foundation HotelCare has directly distributed over $4 million to charitable organisations, and through seed funding of the HotelCare Charity Golf Day facilitated the further distribution of over $2.0 million to various charities and causes.

The HotelCare Golf Day held at Victoria Golf Club in December 2015, with the kind assistance and support of the Victorian Liquor Industry Golf Club, Victoria Golf Club and our corporate partners, provides funds to HotelCare beyond the contributions of gaming pubs, with 100% of monies raised directed to charities and worthy causes.

Within the overall objective of HotelCare to support charitable organisations and to advance the overall interests of pubs and hotels, funds within HotelCare are also utilised to support political parties and current or aspiring members of Parliament who demonstrate a willingness to genuinely consult on relevant policy development and implementation, as well as to fund targeted initiatives in members’ interests.

Decisions on HotelCare expenditure up to $5,000 are made by the Chief Executive Officer and reported to the Executive Committee; decisions on expenditure in excess of $5,000 are made by the Executive Committee and reported to the Council.

 

Donations from HotelCare to worthy charities and causes in 2015/16 included:
