Amity Lions Club – a Non-Profit Organization
HOW WE TACKLED THIS PROJECT
The Amity Lions Club is a service organization that operates within a few miles of our office. It’s an excellent organization that does a lot for the community. It should be noted that I’m a bit partial in my assessment since Brian, our co-owner, is a member of the group. As with most clubs, Lions Clubs across the country are suffering from a lack of new members. They wanted to build a website that could help showcase everything they did and bring in new members. And yep, that’s where we came in.

As a non-profit with zero budget, they weren’t looking for a lot — they simply wanted a clean and modern website so people could learn more about the club and exactly what it is they do. They also wanted the website optimized so people searching online could find them and learn more about the club. Like many service clubs, most people in the community don’t know what they actually do, so it was important to have an easy-to-manage website that could promote the club and its services the local community.
It’s important to note that our services were donated to the Amity Lions Club. They had no out-of-pocket expenses for this project, which is why they never pursued something like this in the past. Everything they generate gets donated back to the community, so they couldn’t justify paying someone to make them a website.
The club is thrilled with the end result. The Lions Club has the perception of being an old and outdated club, but having a fully modern and responsive website will show the community that they’re more relevant than ever. The site will be ever evolving as they have a long history in the community and a ton of content they want to add. We built the site on WordPress, so they can easily update it and add more to it.
