Charleston Parks Conservancy Launches Updated Website
We recently updated our website giving you more insight into Conservancy projects and programs and adding some exciting new features, just in time for upcoming programs and end-of-year giving. Take a look at our new “What We Do” and “Support Us” pages and our new calendar event pages!
The Conservancy website now includes an expanded program page now called “What We Do.” This section focuses on the three crucial ways the Conservancy improves Charleston’s parks — through making parks stunning, keeping them beautiful, and making them fun for everyone. Under these banners, users can find familiar and new programming including, Park Planning, Garden in the Parks, the Community Gardening Program, Jazz Brunch in Hampton Park, Movie Night Series, and much more!
Perhaps the biggest change of all is the inclusion of the new monthly giving program. For the first time ever the Charleston Parks Conservancy is offering all Charleston parks lovers the option to donate at a monthly rate of $5, $10, $25 or more! “We are so excited about this new feature,” shared Stephanie Lee, the Conservancy Annual Giving Manager. “Now our community donors can support their Charleston Parks every month!”
In addition to the monthly donation options, the Conservancy also includes a quick-donate form accessible from the homepage and any page you visit. By clicking on the “Donate Now” button a pop-up form will allow you to donate within seconds to the Conservancy general fund which supports all of our Conservancy projects.
The updated donation features come just in time for end-of-year, with a kickoff on “Giving Tuesday” which occurs each year the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. In 2017, Giving Tuesday raised approximately $274 million in online donations for nonprofits across the United States.
Additional improvements include expanded multimedia pages for community programs, volunteer opportunities, the calendar and supporting the work of the Conservancy. Now every major program has a page of its own for users to learn more, volunteer, and view photos and videos. The new website allows the Conservancy to continue to tell their story and bring the people of Charleston together. Check it out for yourself today!
