As a broad-based grantmaker, Tote Board works closely with stakeholders and partners to identify social needs and challenges in six key sectors: Arts, Community Development, Education, Health, Social Service and Sports. It channels gaming surpluses generated from the operations of Singapore Pools and Singapore Turf Club, as well as from the collections of the casino entry levy, to fund worthy projects and programmes towards “Giving Hope and Improving Lives” of Singaporeans and the community.
Through these grants, Tote Board aims to achieve three strategic outcomes – providing equitable opportunities for vulnerable groups, building a resilient community, and enhancing quality of life for Singaporeans.
The Board holds the legal rights to operate horse racing and totalisators, lotteries (4D, TOTO, Singapore Sweep) as well as sports betting (football and Formula One motor racing). Tote Board also exercises governance over its agents – Singapore Pools (Private) Limited (Singapore Pools) and Singapore Turf Club. Singapore Pools operates 4D, TOTO, Singapore Sweep and sports betting. Singapore Turf Club operates horse racing and totalisator operations.
Tote Board and its agents are committed to conducting gaming businesses in a socially responsible manner and supporting responsible play.
Singapore Pools is committed to being a responsible gambling operator that customers can trust - in 2012, it was conferred the highest accolade by the World Lottery Association in recognition of its responsible gambling practices. Singapore Pools is in the privileged group of being one of the three operators in Asia to achieve this certification.
Singapore Turf Club adopts a strong “Play Responsibly” stance. Through regular engagements with customers, it advocates a balanced approach towards enjoying the sport and thrills of horse racing, without adverse effect on customers’ finances or lifestyle.
