We had the absolute pleasure of working with the amazing organization, the Glen Ellyn Children’s Resource Center [GECRC].
GECRC is a non-profit whose mission is to serve children in Glen Ellyn. Specifically, the organization works to empower students, who meet low-income and academic risk guidelines, by providing after-school and summer programs which emphasize literacy and community involvement, using the talents of teachers, volunteer tutors, adult caregivers and a variety of local support services.
Not-For-Profit firms must compete for donors (of time and money) in an ever-crowded online space, using the same tactics and resources much larger firms might employ, but on limited budgets.
GECRC came to Custom Direct in hopes of developing a new website that would:
- create a more engaging way to tell the GECRC story to volunteers, donors and the greater community and
- provide a mobile-responsive site that is is easily customizable, for content and updates, by volunteers and staff alike.
HOW WE HELPED
We worked closely with the GECRC team of staff and volunteers to produce an entirely new website that has an approachable, friendly design, integrates the legacy volunteer management systems and more effectively showcases the successes of the students in the program and their mission.
