Pokie Proceeds: Building Strong Communities

A huge number of community organisations benefit from gaming machine proceeds by way of grants.   In the 2015/2016 financial year alone good causes recieved about $260 million in grants, an amount many community groups would struggle to source elsewhere.

The Department of Internal Affairs have recently developed an e-booklet called "Pokie Proceeds: Building Strong Communities."  It tells the stories of 10 organisations helped by gaming funding from Grassroots Trust and other Gaming Trusts in New Zealand - why they applied for a grant, challenges they faced, what the money was put to and tips to other applicants.

If you are a Community Organisation, we recommend reading the booklet to improve your knowledge and build your organisation's confidence in seeking funding.  The booklet also includes tips on how to best apply for gaming grants.

The e-booklet Pokie Proceeds: Building Strong Communities was developed and written by the Department of Internal Affairs.

Better Governance pays off for Grassroots Trust

The Department of Internal Affairs recently published the following article about Grassroots Trust in their publication Gambits.

Better Governance pays off for Grassroots

Grassroots Trust is an example of how improved governance practice can improve the overall outcomes of a society.

In 2011, due to financial difficulties and a number of compliance issues including failure to meet the minimum rate of return to the community, the Department proposed to cancel their licence.

Following negotiations with the Department and a genuine willingness from Grassroots to operate at a higher standard, the cancellation was downgraded to a suspension, allowing Grassroots to retain its licence, under the conditions that Grassroots returned a minimum of 40 per cent GMP to the community and adhered to a Limit D maximum of 14.5 per cent of payment to venues (this condition was removed in mid 2013).

To achieve these conditions Grassroots has adopted an approach to governance and management that is aligned with the Departments draft governance principles.  This has resulted in more diverse representation on the Board, which better reflects the community in which they operate, and broadening their grant funding to a wider range of sports organisations, as well as community and education organisations.

Grassroots has reported significant improvements over the last two years, and in their most recent update for the year ending 31 March 2014 reported a return to community of $5,950,250 representing 42.75% per cent of gaming machine proceeds, venue payment percentage of 14.79 per cent, and administration expenses (management services) percentage of 3.8 per cent.

The Department commends these results from Grassroots, and it is great to see the positive impact good governance has made to the philanthropic outcomes for the community.  This demonstrates the benefits of working collaboratively with the Department to achieve shared goals.

Increase to minimum Rate of Return

Increase to minimum rate of return effective from September

Internal Affairs Minister, Hon Peter Dunne, has announced today that the Gambling (Class 4 Net Proceeds) Amendment Regulations 2014 will come into effect on 4 September 2014.

The regulations increase the minimum rate of return (ROR) from 37.12 per cent of gross proceeds up to 42 per cent over a five year period.

For corporate societies the increase in the minimum rate of return will commence in the first full financial year after the regulations take effect and be staggered over five years, to allow the sector time to adopt to the new requirements.

Minimum rate of return for the next five years onwards, therefore, is as follows:

  • Financial years commencing on or after 4 September 2014 = 40% RTC
  • Financial years commencing on or after 4 September 2016 = 41% RTC
  • Financial years commencing on or after 4 September 2018 = 42% RTC

Grassroots Trust is supportive of increasing the return to our communities and in the year end March 2014, Grassroots Trust returned $5,950,025.20 to sport, community and education organisations which represents 42.75% of gaming machine proceeds.
