United Way is partnering with Envative to make Roc the Day, their flagship fund-raising event, easier for agencies to participate in and for ROC stars to give!
Online PR News – 20-June-2017 – Rochester, NY – United Way of Greater Rochester has partnered with local software development firm, Envative, to rewrite United Way’s web-based software application for the charitable organization’s flagship donation event, Roc the Day, for 2017.
ROC the Day is a community-wide 24-hour day of online giving. Thousands of donors come together each year to support hundreds of not-for-profit organizations from across the region. To date, ROC the Day has raised millions of dollars each November to give an end-of-year boost to the charities doing great work in the Rochester community.
United Way’s primary goals for updating the ROC the Day system include mobile-device responsiveness and user interface improvements, such as agency search and a streamlined donation check-out process. In addition, users can expect an updated look and feel for the ROC the Day website. Combined with other functional updates, the planned changes will ensure an improved user experience for United Way participant agencies and ROC Stars (donors) alike.
Envative has managed United Way’s web properties since 2014 and has made incremental site improvements each year. “Our partners at Envative help us to provide the most user-friendly experience for our donors, the participating non-profits and our community,” said Juli Geyer, Director of Marketing and Communications at United Way. “ROC the Day is a fun event to rally our community to help hundreds of great causes, and we’re excited to work with Envative to revamp the site for this year’s event.”
United Way’s commitment to making broader website enhancements this year is a testament to the organization’s dedication to providing successful fundraising for the hundreds of participating not-for-profits throughout the Greater Rochester community and nine-county region.
