The Sports & Arts in Schools Foundation (SASF), a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is one of the largest providers of school-based after-school programs in New York City and the metropolitan region, serving more than 20,000 students in over 150 public schools. As the largest CBO provider of school-based, extended learning programs in New York City, SASF needed a website as engaging as the programs it provides.
In need of an updated design and CMS, SASF came to NIFTIT looking to modernize the look and feel of their site in order to appeal to students, parents, teachers, donors, and other parties interested in the organization's work. With services provided to over 20,000 of NY's elementary, middle, and high school students each year, SASF wanted to increase the number of images displayed throughout the site to showcase the wide variety of activities provided to the participants of the foundation's many programs. It was important to SASF that their site be mobile-friendly so that busy parents could check events and programs while on the go.
Additionally, the SASF team stressed a need for an editor-friendly CMS that they could easily update to reflect the foundation's most recent happenings. Of particular note is the custom map developed by NIFTIT that allows site visitors to easily search and locate SASF programs by school, location, borough, or grade level.
