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 exercises governance over Singapore Pools (Private) Limited on 4D, TOTO, Singapore Sweep, sports betting and horse betting operations. Tote Board's proprietary club, Singapore Turf Club, manages and operates high quality horse racing.
Tote Board Group is committed to conducting gaming businesses in a socially responsible manner and supporting responsible play.
In 2012, Singapore Pools was conferred the highest accolade by the World Lottery Association in recognition of its responsible gambling practices. Singapore Pools is one of the seven operators in Asia-Pacific to achieve this certification.
