The Africa Grantmakers’ Affinity Group connects philanthropy leaders to benefit African communities. Their previous website included a custom content management system that was tricky to use. The staff were ready for an updated site that matched their new focus and unique virtual collaboration style.
Together with the Affinity Group’s leaders, we focused on features that are easy to maintain for a close-knit staff *and* provide big value to members and supporters. For example, the custom membership database is easy to search for any visitor. It also has a more robust component that is only accessible to Affinity Group members.
The staff manage the daily updates to AfricaGrantmakers.org on their own. I build all my nonprofit clients’ websites to be easy to maintain and update. It’s important to me that my clients be in full control of their site.
I continue to serve the Affinity Group as a strategic digital advisor and for occasional feature upgrades.
