West Philadelphia Catholic High School (West Catholic) is a Catholic community of academic excellence in an urban environment which is open to an interdenominational population. The school's rigorous spiritual, academic, technological, and co-curricular programs develop our ethnically and religiously diverse student body into young men and women of strong moral and ethical character.
A replacement for its previous alumni website, which was too expensive, too cold, and too confusing to use. They also needed something to act as an all-in-one fundraising tool and development system.
We deployed AlwaysABurr.org, a CommunityBuilder site for the school. With an online yearbook, forums, galleries, and more, its social networking foundation would allow alumni to communicate with each other while staying abreast of current West Catholic events and topics. CommunityBuilder's secure access and privacy features allow alums to keep their content invisible to the public (and even to other alums), though they can opt into continued direct communication from the school.
West Catholic's development department also enjoys an advanced set of online administrative tools that aid in reporting, donation tracking, mass mailings, user management, and more. Fundraising and communication efforts are easier than ever before with CommunityBuilder.
The site aesthetic also mirrors their public website for current students and parents, as well as an admissions CD-ROM/print promotion.
