Who we support

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

Since its foundation HotelCare has distributed more than $4 million to charitable organisations. Through the seed funding of the HotelCare Charity Golf Day a further distribution of more than $2 million has been made to various charities and causes.

Through contributions from members with gaming machines, HotelCare is funded on behalf of all AHA (Vic) members.

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 while advancing the overall interests of pubs and hotels, funds within HotelCare are also utilised to support political parties and current or aspiring members of Parliament. These donations are given to those who demonstrate a willingness to genuinely consult on relevant policy development and implementation, as well as to fund targeted initiatives in members’ interests.
