For Clubs & Schools

Sporting clubs and schools constantly need funding to provide facilities and usually rely on volunteers providing substantial amounts of their time in fundraising programmes as an adjunct to sponsorship. This, with increasing demands on volunteer ‘Not for Profit’ organizations, results in volunteer burn-out.

It is becoming increasingly hard to find volunteers, and those that do volunteer are doing more and more while the costs of running a sporting club or school continue to increase.

Business Plaza provides a source of regular revenue for community groups without requiring the current committee members and volunteers to do more.  Most importantly for a club or school:

 

  • There is no cost to participate
  • You don't have to buy or sell anything
  • Payments to your club or school are not based on sales or click-throughs from your web site
  • We don't take over your web site
  • We don't violate the privacy of your members
  • We do give you money
  • We provide free services such as electronic smart phone membership cards and help with e-newsletter design, production and sending

Business Plaza develops and manages all aspects of the Business Plaza, and is responsible for all associated costs. Business Plaza charges advertisers a 'rate-card' fee to participate and shares that fee with the individual club or school.  Each Business Plaza is a completely separate and managed web site from the club or school's web site.

In addition, members of each participating community receive bonuses or discounts when purchasing products or services from many advertisers in their Business Plaza, a substantial benefit seen as being provided by the sporting club or school to their members.
