“In this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” - Benjamin Franklin
Benjamin may have been on to something when he uttered this quote. It’s that time of year again when everyone is preparing their taxes, and its gotten us thinking about taxes and charity recently. Fusionbox has a history of charity through our pro bono web design clients, and we thought we’d take the opportunity to talk about some of good works we’ve done in the past.
Most recently, we donated a new website to the Metro Denver chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Habitat for Humanity builds and rebuilds homes for people in need of affordable housing. Fusionbox was proud to implement the site with our in-house CMS called Widgy. This open source content management system allows Habitat for Humanity to easily edit the content on their site to keep in fresh. Fusionbox handled all of the custom design and development of this $24,000 website. As a thank you for the site, Habitat for Humanity invited the Fusionbox team to their Raise the Roof gala.
We also designed and developed the current website for Mi Casa, a resource center for Latino and working families. Mi Casa works with families to provide them educational and professional training. This site was launched using Wordpress, a familiar CMS with a large community of developers creating plugins and templates. With such a robust and active community, Mi Casa can make changes to their site in any way they like. This $43,000 site was part of Fusionbox’s dedication to giving back to the community.
Fusionbox regularly accepts pro bono clients, because we believe in promoting nonprofits that help the community. we understand what it is like to run an organization on a nonprofit's budget, so we provide our services to certain associations free of charge. We don’t have the ability to do this for all nonprofit companies, but we are always looking for deserving organizations in need of a new online presence.
Take a look at some of the other work we’ve done.
