Sports clubs, cultural institutions, and other initiatives perform valuable work in the field of leisure activities and are invaluable for the quality of life in cities and communities. To ensure that this work can be continued on a consistent basis and new projects can be implemented, STW launched its own crowdfunding platform last May.

STW is a strong partner for associations
Committed sports or cultural associations thus have the opportunity to present and advertise their projects. The digital platform is a modern alternative to traditional fundraising and offers interesting opportunities for supporters with mini-sponsorship packages and goodies. “Stadtwerke Klagenfurt is a strong partner of sports and cultural clubs,” explained STW board member Dipl.-Ing. Erwin Smole. “Through crowdfunding, we support ideas of individual clubs in a new way so that meaningful projects can be realized even faster.”
Junior bowling project became a high-flyer
The first project was already successfully financed in this way within a very short time. The Carinthian Sports Bowling Association collected support for the club’s promotion of young talent with the aim of bringing the marginal sport of bowling closer to young people and encouraging young people to take up the sport. To this end, the club used the Klagenfurt Crowd opportunity to draw the public’s attention to the project. With success: the target sum of €3,000 set in advance was even exceeded with the help of 54 supporters! “That already after a short time the first project could be financed successfully shows that we are with our Klagenfurt Crowd on the correct way around engaged sport and culture associations with the realization of their heart projects effectively to support” are pleased Smole.
Soccer Girl Academy is still looking for supporters
Up-to-date a further project stands shortly before the realization. The Soccer Girl Academy Carinthia offers girls between 4 and 16 years the possibility with soccer playfully their physical and mental abilities to improve and extend. With the collected support, they would like to further expand the promotion of young girls’ soccer in Carinthia. Thanks to the Klagenfurt Crowd, 80 percent of the project costs have already been collected. Until September 2nd, supporters still have the opportunity to help the soccer-loving girls with a small or larger contribution.
“I have been active with my club since 2020 and have been able to inspire many girls for sports and soccer during this time. It is very close to my heart to make the training without pressure and to give the girls the opportunity to let off steam, make friends and boost their self-confidence. Soccer is about so much more than scoring goals, the sport in a group is important and conducive to emotional and social development,” said Gerhard Markun, explaining the philosophy of the Soccer Girl Academy. Work is currently underway to complete a dedicated sports center in Maria Rain. The money from crowdfunding would be an important contribution to this project and would also enable the purchase of equipment.
