Liqui-Site launches site for Frances Pope Memorial Foundation in New York City
(Nyack, NY) January 11, 2013 – Liqui-Site Designs, Inc. announced today the launch of a new website at www.francespopefoundation.org for the Frances Pope Memorial Foundation, Inc. (FPMF), a non-profit organization that offers financial and emotional support to families of children with cancer. The money raised by FPMF helps defray costs that are not covered by insurance, like transportation and hotel stays, mortgage payments and other life expenses, so families can focus on what is most important – their child’s recovery.
Started in 1982 as a parish group in a small enclave of New York City, FPMF originally formed after a family’s tragic loss of their two-year-old daughter, Frances Pope, from cancer. Today, FPMF is recognized for its network of dedicated and caring volunteers, known as the Circle of Friends, its rapid responsiveness to families’ needs and for working hard to minimize the burden of paperwork on families already dealing with unthinkable circumstances. To date, the FPMF has raised over one million dollars and helped nearly 400 families.
Additionally, FPMF funds the Andrew Baeumler Technology Program at Mount Sinai Children’s Hospital – designed to enhance quality of life for pediatric patients during their fight by giving them access to computers, and the Fellowship at the New York University Hassenfeld Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders – a training program for young doctors who wish to spend their professional lives taking care of children with cancer and seeking new methods of combating the disease.
Liqui-Site was privileged to work with this special organization to design and develop a new website, built on WordPress CMS and optimized for search engines. The major design objectives included attention to the Foundation’s fundraising events, raffles and donor contributions, as well as to showcase the stories of the families and children served. Liqui-Site integrated social content sharing and a utilized a fundraising goal graphic to track charitable giving and motivates visitors to donate or volunteer. A stunning photo gallery of the Foundation’s children, testimonials from families, and compelling copy bring the spirit of the organization to life.
