The Immokalee Foundation launches new website with focus on student success stories

NAPLES – Visitors to The Immokalee Foundation’s new website at https://immokaleefoundation.org have the chance to meet several program participants and graduates through videos, photos and testimonials.

On the home page, a prompt connects visitors to a video featuring students at various levels of success, including professionals who have achieved the ultimate goal of financial independence in a career. The testimonials include touching family histories and how each participant became involved in The Immokalee Foundation’s educational programs.

Visitors to the site also learn about the history of the foundation as well as its current programming. Staff, board members, community partners and sponsors also are featured. Photos throughout the site demonstrate the foundation in action through its programs, including Immokalee Readers, Take Stock in Children, Career Development and Post-Secondary & Career Success; details about each effort show each program’s performance “by the numbers.”

The multimedia site is easy to navigate and places important information at the user’s fingertips. Visitors are never more than a click away from resources, including a donations page, events calendar, annual report, photo and video galleries, a guide for mentors, information about how to get involved, and much more.

The press section not only helps working media stay informed about the foundation’s activities but also serves to bring up to speed anyone unfamiliar with The Immokalee Foundation. Online archives run from 2010 to the present, with information about previous fundraisers like the annual Charity Classic Celebration and Pro-Am golf tournament (scheduled this year for Nov. 9 and 12), as well as career panels, grants, awards and scholarships The Immokalee Foundation and its students have received.

“Our newly redesigned website is visually appealing, more engaging and user-friendly for our donors, mentors, families and community,” said Noemi Perez, executive director. “Our goal is to provide the most up-to-date information on the services we provide to our students, while offering a portal for those in the community who would like to learn more and support our efforts.”

The Immokalee Foundation provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to professional careers through support, mentoring and tutoring, and life skills development leading to economic independence.
