Treasury Casino & Hotel has always been recognised as a major investor in community activities, charitable organisations and local events. As one of the most iconic buildings in the heart of the city, Treasury is committed to growing and developing the communities in which our business operates and our employees live and work.
Some of our key annual initiatives include:
- Continued our long-term relationship with the Cerebral Palsy League of Queensland (CPLQ), with 2012 marking Treasury’s tenth year as Presenting Partner of the CPLQ’s major annual fundraiser, Picnic in the Park, a free family day out in Roma Street Parklands. This year’s event was attended by more than 8,000 people and raised over $158,000 for the charity.
- Participated in the National Trust of Queensland’s third annual Brisbane Open House event, which saw significant heritage buildings opened to the public for guided tours. Over 33,000 visits were recorded in 2012 across the 51 participating sites (almost a 100% increase from 2011).
- Treasury has supported the Surf Safe Appeal since its inception, providing essential life-saving equipment to clubs around Queensland each year. The Appeal also engages our team members, who volunteer their time to answers phones in the “Count Room” throughout the week.
Treasury Casino & Hotel also supports many charities and events by lighting the building in supporting colours. This includes lighting the building red for Multiple Sclerosis Awareness, yellow for Surf Lifesaving Queensland, purple of Epilepsy Awareness Day and pink for Breast Cancer Awareness.
Our team members are also actively involved in giving back to the community through our internal support program, Open Your Hearts. This initiative allows Treasury team members to nominate charities or groups in their local communities to receive donations or funding from the organisation.
The charities, organisations and causes supported by Open Your Hearts are as varied as our teams, and in the past 12 months over 110 community and charity groups have received support valued at $90,000.

Jupiters Casino Community Benefit Fund
Through the Queensland Government, Treasury Brisbane, Jupiters Gold Coast and Jupiters Townsville pay a community benefit levy of 1% of the casinos' gross revenue under legislation enacted by the Government in 1982 when casinos were first introduced in the State.
The Jupiters Casino Community Benefit Fund was created as part of that legislation, its role being to administer the community benefit levy. The Fund is administered by seven Trustees who are appointed by the Government and the casinos as representatives of the wider community.
The Jupiters Casino Community Benefit Fund distributes funds by way of grants to non-profit community organisations for projects which are of benefit to the community at large. The Fund accepts applications from eligible organisations within its jurisdiction, which extends from the Queensland/NSW border to the
northern boundaries of the Central Queensland Shires of Boulia, Winton, Aramac, Belyando and Broadsound.
Each year, the Jupiters Casino Community Benefit Fund allocates several million dollars to charities and community groups. Projects funded are as diverse as assisting disadvantaged youth assimilate back into the community to providing emergency vehicles for rural fire brigades and the State Emergency Service.
