One of the biggest problem of civil society organizations (CSO) in Cyprus - especially in the northern part of the island - is difficulties in securing national donors. Most of the main activities of many CSOs depend on international funding. Many of the organizations do have a membership systems in place however they are faced with challenges in collecting the membership fees.
STARS CLUB! aims at resolving this problem on behalf of CSOs. The urge behind this idea was "to encourage people to help more". The main idea was to make donating an enjoyable process. An online database of NGOs will be set up. This database will be web-based and will also be available on smart gadgets such as phones or tablets. By doing this it will be easier for donors to have access to organizations. Individuals or institutions who would like to donate will become members of the club. Their membership information will not be shared with others. Members will pay a administration fee for keeping their memberships active. Member Donors will be able to search keywords to identify organizations or causes they wish to support.Member Donors will also receive notifications when: a) there is an urgent call from any organizations b) when there is a new organization or cause added to the database c) if an organization they supported have achieved something.
