FUNDING BY GOVERNMENT AND BUSINESS




BUSINESS GENEROSITY SURVEY 2000-01

There are three types of support which businesses can provide. These are:

  • Donations - money, goods or services given unconditionally by a business in order to show support, not receive a benefit
  • Business to community projects - cooperative arrangements involving the provision of money, goods or services in exchange for strategic business benefits such as improved staff expertise, wider networking and enhanced community reputation
  • Sponsorship - the provision of money, goods or services in exchange for advertising or promotional benefits.

The total value of business support for all activities during 2000-01 was $1,446.6m, of which the largest share ($628.0m or 43.4%) went to fund Sports and recreation. The majority of the Sports and recreation funding ($479.8m or 76.4%) was provided through Sponsorship. The remainder was made up of $108.8m in Donations (17.3%) and $39.4m (6.3%) from Business to community projects.


The industry division which provided the most funding to Sports and recreation was Manufacturing with $179.8m. This was 28.6% of the total. Other divisions to provide at least $60m in funding were Wholesale trade ($91.1m), Property and business services ($79.9m), Accommodation, cafes and restaurants ($62.0m) and Finance and insurance ($60.0m). The least funding came from Education with $0.5m and Health and community services with $1.1m.


Manufacturing was the industry division which provided the most funding through Sponsorship, and also through Business to community projects. However, its $7.8m in Donations was exceeded by three other industry divisions: Property and business services which donated $38.1m; Accommodation, cafes and restaurants which donated $28.6m; and Retail trade which donated $9.7m.
