GiveBack NY is an event where
work to build a beautiful website for a well-deserving non-profit in a weekend
GiveBack NY is a program that helps non-profits increase their digital presence (for free!) with the help of some of New York's most talented designers, developers and marketing wizards. A non-profit organization is selected to have their technology problem solved by the Give Back NY team over the course of a weekend.
The program is spearheaded by Kate Baldwin, a UX Designer at Bootsoft, and the program has recently teamed up with GiveBack DC. The initiative is supported by Bootsoft, who have offered their space and encouraged employee participation on past events.
The Autism Program at BMC is a group of amazing people who work with families of all types to provide support, resources and help to all who need it. They did not have any kind of internet presence, and we were so excited to provide them with branding, an identity and a great new site.
They have a ton of resources, information and offerings for people, so we wanted to organize the large amount of content in an easily navigated and intuitive way.
The site came out as a huge success, and the people at The Autism Program were extremely happy with the outcome. We are incredibly happy to add this website to our repertoire.
Sports2Success uses sports as a platform to empower today’s youth to help them pursue employment and become contributing members to the workforce. Through Sports Leadership Training and Apprenticeship programs, they build up kids with the confidence to excel in life, and through a career.
We gave their logo some updating and organized all of their content in a digestible way. We wanted it to be understandable and make it possible for all their visitors to find what they were looking for quickly. We also wanted to give it a fun, youthful appearance, while maintaining professionalism directed at their target audience of adult volunteers and sponsors.
We're looking forward to Sports2Success starting up their programs this year, and we wish them much success, hopefully driven by their new site!
If you work for a non-profit and are interested in having a website created for your group for free, please get in touch. We are open to any kind of industry, we welcome people with existing sites that need a make-over.
We haven't planned the next date, but please feel free to apply, and we'll let you know the next event!
