The Santa Cruz Sunrise Rotary Club needed a website with a sole purpose of promoting their various non-profit fundraising events and capital campaigns. As with most clubs they were already using a software CMS that included a web interface to manage their membership, weekly meeting notes and club business. However, their current solution fell short in technology, user interface and ascetics when managing and prompting their events.

Santa Cruz Web Design company Tree Top Web Design teamed up with the Rotary Club to completely rethink and redesign the way their non-profit fundraising events and capital campaigns were managed and promoted. The new website would be launched to support an effort to raise $100k over 2 years. These funds will be used to outfit the new Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Exploration Center’s classroom with state-of-the-art teaching tools and audio visual equipment to support children’s programs.

The new events website integrates online ticket sales for fundraising socials with an online donation feature using the special PayPal payment gateway for non-profit organizations. This program allows for a substantially reduced processing percentage and allows the donor to pay this charge if he or she wishes so more of the donation is received by the club.

Other features include an integrated email newsletter system to be used for keeping members and participants updated on the latest fundraising news and events. The website was build using a responsive framework making it 100% mobile friendly for both website viewing and mobile ticket sales. If your club or organization needs help promoting your non-profit fundraising events and capital campaigns we would love to become your Santa Cruz Web Design partner.
