Bill Morris | Communications Chair DMF
The Del Mar Foundation is proud to announce the launch of our new website, https://delmarfoundation.org. The website is the product of several months of dedication by a subcommittee, headed by Hylton Lonstein, and consisting of myself, Sandra Hoyle, Betty Wheeler, Amanda Allen, Ira Sharp, Jenny Galan and Virginia Lawrence.
We wanted to utilize a modern, easy-to-use web-publishing platform with an adaptive design that can easily adjust itself to the size of the screen of the user, be it a mobile phone, a pad, or a computer with large monitor. Research revealed that more than half of our site visitors were accessing the site using mobile phones.
Our new site enables the widespread use of image sliders and we hope these photographs appropriately display the Del Mar Foundation’s community involvement and give you, our supporters and volunteers, a better sense of what we, as your community Foundation, contribute.
We collaborated to create an intuitive site that is accessible to those familiar with us, as well as someone who is curious about the Del Mar Foundation for the first time. Our “About” section recounts our origins 37+ years ago, our current leadership, as well as a list of Past Presidents, and relevant documents. Visiting the “Programs” sections details the programs and events we provide to the community. Our “Grants” page recounts examples of previous grants as well as specific instructions to apply. For those looking for volunteer information, it is easily accessible on our “Get Involved page.” Lastly, “Your Community Foundation” and “Donate” pages provide updated information about how to support the DMF.
We hope you will take some time to familiarize yourself with our new site, enjoy it as much as we have and learn something new about us!
