What is KlubFunder?

KlubFunder is a development toolkit for sports clubs. Its a one stop shop that assists with all aspects of running a sports club.

How it started

KlubFunder was developed by a Belfast based software company called Stiona Software. The three directors of Stiona Software are all heavily embroiled in sport; one of the directors was approached by his local club for advice on how they could maximise engagement with their members in the constantly changing digital world. The club recognised the trend that more and more people were going online via their mobile phones, tablets and other devices - so they were keen to extend their fundraising activities online. They also wanted to make it easier for club members no longer living in the local area to engage with and support the club. The request was brought back to the team at Stiona and they put their heads together, quickly realising that there was an opportunity to create a platform that would be of benefit to all clubs across all sports. And so KlubFunder was born. #ClubDevelopmentToolkit #MakingADifference
