Developing a Custom Website that Adapts to the Changing Needs of a Long-Term Project and Facilitates Donations

The Salem Rotary Club approached us with a unique challenge: to create a website that would effectively showcase their new project, the Gerry Frank Rotary Amphitheater, located in downtown Salem, Oregon’s Riverfront Park. The website needed to evolve over several years, transitioning from a concept showcase to a platform for tracking ongoing progress, and ultimately, celebrating the project’s completion. Moreover, the website had to facilitate user-friendly monetary donations from the community.

Our solution was a custom-built website featuring an intuitive donation page that processed credit card payments using Stripe, a secure and reliable payment processor. This design enabled community members to seamlessly contribute to the project, regardless of the donation size.

Considering the long-term nature of the Amphitheater project, the Salem Rotary Club required the website to remain online for an extended period. To ensure its continued performance, Harness Media hosts and maintains the website, guaranteeing a fast, secure, and safe online environment for receiving donations. By providing ongoing support and maintenance, we ensure that the Gerry Frank Rotary Amphitheater website remains a valuable resource for the community as it celebrates the project’s milestones and completion until it comes integrated with the City of Salem’s website.

This case study highlights our commitment to crafting adaptable websites that meet the evolving needs of our clients and their projects.

About Rotary Amphitheater

We’re setting the stage for the Gerry Frank Salem Rotary Amphitheater. To celebrate 100 years of service, the Rotary Club of Salem is leading a community effort to construct a new, multi-purpose amphitheater at Salem’s Riverfront Park. Having already contributed two Riverfront Park landmarks – the Rotary Pavilion and the Rotary Children’s Playground – the new amphitheater will become an iconic landmark identifying the region and Riverfront Park as a premier spot in Oregon for fun and entertainment.
