Greater Cincinnati Planned Giving Council – Customer Case Study

The Greater Cincinnati Planned Giving Council (GCPGC) is a nonprofit membership-based organization with a mission to increase the quantity and quality of planned giving in our community. To accomplish this, the organization provides a forum for education, training, and networking amongst various professional disciplines involved in gift planning, per The Model Standards of Practice for Charitable Gift Planners.

LCS Web Services has provided maintenance and hosting for the GCPGC’s custom website for the last six years. With an exclusive members-only portal and extensive resources dedicated to a good cause, the GCPGC relies on LCS to keep its members informed and its website working smoothly.

A Dedication to Service

While the GCPGC helps others serve the community through planned giving, the organization also appreciates LCS’ dedication to service. The website hosts their membership database, which members then can use as a directory to connect. The site also hosts exclusive reference documents and other members-only resources.

Misty Griesinger, Council Administrator with the Greater Cincinnati Planned Giving Council, says that when the website needs any updates or she has a question beyond her realm of expertise, she loves that LCS is always ready to help. “Typically, my questions are answered in a timely manner, and any issues are resolved quickly,” she says. The built-in platform for updates also makes maintenance a breeze. Compared to their previous site, Griesinger says that adding events or updating the homepage is much more user-friendly.     

Professional Quality on a Budget

Nonprofit organizations like the GCPGC typically run on tight budgets. So, when it came to their website, they needed a robust option with excellent service that wouldn’t break the bank. They needed something functional and user-friendly, and LCS’ Web Services fit the bill. Not only were the operating costs within budget, Griesinger says that LCS’ Web Development Specialists helped the GCPGC save money by recommending an alternative option for some of their website’s functionality. “The Web Services team was able to help me find a new forms plugin for the website when our old one was no longer free. As a nonprofit, we work on a smaller budget, and the assistance from LCS was much appreciated,” she says.
