Erie Community College Foundation Bestows New Site on Alumni

Tue, Aug 23rd 2011 11:30 am

The Erie Community College (ECC) Foundation launched its new website www.ecc-foundation.com with 360 Professional Services Group.

"Vision for the Future," ECC's Annual Giving Campaign, is a way for alumni, trustees, employees and friends of the college to invest in and fund many of the important academic initiatives and educational endeavors that enhance the college's mission in the community.

360 PSG provided custom graphic design giving the ECC Foundation a more professional presence online to promote their Annual Giving Campaign, which allows alumni to support the specific departments, scholarships or programs that are important to them, directly from the campaign website.

ECC's online development effort is supported by the addition of multiple Fission Premium Components to their custom designed site. Most integral to the campaign is the Fission Donation Manager, which allows ECC's benefactors to easily make contributions from a single form. Additionally, the integration of the Event Registration feature, combined with the e-commerce shopping cart, offers supporters a hassle-free interface from which to purchase tickets for upcoming alumni events (and gives ECC staff the ability to control ticket sales from the back end of their site).

The ECC Foundation's new website operates on the Fission Web System, which contains built-in search engine optimization tools that have the potential to increase search engine ranking and improve visibility online.

With the Fission Content Management System (CMS), the ECC Foundation has the ability to create, update and edit an unlimited number of content pages from any computer with internet access at any time.  

The Erie Community College Foundation's new site is hosted on 360 PSG's secure servers at their business class datacenter in downtown Buffalo, NY.
