Hours of training in the rain and in the sun, weekends on the pitch and in the gym, time spent with friends, post-match discussions in the pub, being pushed to the next level both physically and emotionally, learning resilience and breaking down barriers, bringing back that first win alone or as a team…feeling on top of the world – the positive aspects of sports go way beyond the enhancement of our physical and mental health.
Sport and physical activity impact the life of the individual, the community and society at large. So, we have developed FundStar to help you give back to your local sports club so they can get on with what they do best, provide the space for you and your family to have fun and learn essential life skills and good health.
FundStar is a prepaid card that you can use to buy anything online or in store, pin or contactless. Every time you use your FundStar card, you choose to support your favourite good cause with a micro-donation from 20p to £1. You almost won’t notice the donation you’re making – just like the cash you used to put in collecting tins!
You can support up to three good causes and five projects at any one time. You have full visibility, knowing how much you’ve donated, what your donation is being spent on and how your donations are contributing to the goal.
And the best thing bit about FundStar? You’re rewarded for doing good by being part of our Star Rewards.
Sounds simple? Well, it is!
Whether it is new kit, additional equipment or those floodlights the club has been talking about for years – you will benefit greatly from the micro-donations from the many members. And the best thing is, while you are making unnoticeable donations to the fund of your choice, you can receive the same and more back by taking advantage of our Star Rewards.
At FundStar we believe you should be rewarded for making doing good a daily habit. So, we have created Star Rewards.
As a member of Star Rewards you have the opportunity to purchase Gift Cards and Digital Vouchers at great discounts from leading retailers.
You can also earn up to 10% cash back when you spend at our participating retailers. Depending on how generous you feel, you can either keep it for yourself, donate 50% or donate 100% to your favourite causes. You decide!
Look out for regular offers and promotions from our growing pool of partners.
As we all know raising money costs money. We would love to offer FundStar for free and have worked hard to keep the costs as low as possible – not least because as a social enterprise trying to support good causes, we make nothing from running FundStar. All we pass on are the fees we’re charged from the card operators.
