Association of Fundraising Professionals: Quad Cities Website Redesign
The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Quad Cities chapter decided it was time to upgrade their web presence.
Wix Vs. Squarespace
Their previous website was built using the Wix platform, which meant they needed to make sure two versions of the site functioned correctly because if they made a change to the desktop version, it might have altered how the layout appeared on mobile. With Squarespace, they no longer have to worry about that as Squarespace is responsive — which means only one view to update and the site automatically adjusts to whatever size screen.
Calendar & Events
The main goal of this organization is to provide educational events to the local fundraising community. By using the Calendar and Events platform on Squarespace, and integrating their existing EventBrite platform, we were able to seamlessly create events and accept registrations.
Another key feature is as soon as the event date and time passes, it will disappear from the site keeping their website more up to date than ever before.
We also were able to easily add Categories for the types of events offered from monthly luncheons to introductory and advanced courses.
The AFP chapter also had a lot of forms for various needs so we took the paper, Word and Google Doc forms and converted them all in to Squarespace forms. One central location for everything!
