This year, The SFP Trust and The Kilpatrick Fraser Charitable Trust (KFCT) set-up a new innovative IT and Sustainability fund to support Quality-Mark accredited community clubs who were interested in using technology to aid their growth and development.
Grants of £500 will be awarded to part-fund the start-up costs of web-based club management systems which are designed to enable real financial, resourcing and administrative benefits, addressing many of the challenges club volunteers face on a day to day basis.
The Pars Foundation from Dunfermline recently received an award for ‘My Club Hub’ which is the club management system they have chosen to enhance their ongoing growth, development, sustainability, communication and governance strategies. Gordon Milne, Trustee from the Foundation commented on the award by saying “We are extremely grateful to the SFP Trust and The Kilpatrick Fraser Charitable Trust for this award. The immediate benefits of this system have been our ability to communicate with our participants during COVID-19 which has been excellent. We have been able to deliver a consistent message, change arrangements at short notice and adjust payment values, all remotely. Obviously when we get going again we can launch quickly and effectively using MCH. The sooner we can get our players active again, the better!”
