Clover Valley Foundation
Many years ago I worked with this group to create their website. The purpose of the site is to inform the Foundation's donors and others interested in their mission about Foundation activities.
As is the case with many non-profit organizations, website updates were few and done occasionally. When we launched the website about 13 years ago, things were much simpler on the Web. It was easier for the Foundation to update their own website. They didn't have to be concerned about mobile devices — how the website looked and worked on smaller screens. Now, however, those days are gone. These days, I try to keep up with the changes so my clients don't have to.
In 2017, the website owners asked me to make some improvements to the website, including restructuring some of the content and increasing mobile device speed (per Google's PageSpeed Insights report). Last year, we added the secure-connection capability (HTTPS protocol) that shows the lock indicating that visitor data - for example, on the contact form - is encrypted when being transmitted over the Internet.
