Systems Alliance Launches Redesigned Website for The Living Legacy Foundation of Maryland

New Vibrant Design, Restructured Information Architecture and Implementation of SiteExecutive CMS Allows The Living Legacy Foundation to Convey Importance of Organ Donation to Marylanders

Hunt Valley, MD , 03/19/2012 -

Systems Alliance, a Web and IT consulting firm that helps clients build, assess and optimize online properties, today announced it had re-designed and launched a new website for The Living Legacy Foundation. The non-profit organization facilitates the donation and recovery of human organs and tissue for transplantation and research in Maryland with the exception of Charles, Montgomery and Prince George’s counties.

The new website design showcases Maryland organ and tissue donors and their families, as well as transplant recipients who are grateful for the second chance at life they have been given. Information on how to sign up to be an organ, eye and tissue donor, as well as information and resources for community leaders to help them champion The LLF’s life-saving cause are also included in the new site.

With its new site, The LLF anticipates being able to provide better information to its clinical partners, more effectively engage with donor families and better educate the public about the organ donation process. Moving quickly to meet these objectives was a key consideration in the selection of Systems Alliance as their Web consultant on this project.

"After meeting several Web consultancies, we chose Systems Alliance based on their ability to provide a complete Web solution,” said Jennifer Gelman, Director of Professional Education at The LLF. “It was clear they developed a full understanding of what we were trying to accomplish with our Web presence, and it shows through the new design.”

The Living Legacy Foundation had not redesigned its website in several years, and realized the antiquated look and feel of the site was inhibiting their ability to engage key audiences. In addition, their website was difficult for non-technical staff to modify. The poor ease-of-use discouraged regular site updates, causing Web content to be outdated. Realizing these challenges, The LLF began to seek out a Web consulting partner to help them transform and modernize their online presence.

This “complete solution” provided by Systems Alliance included new information architecture, creative design, Content Management System (CMS) implementation and on-going support. Built in SAI’s SiteExecutive™ Web CMS, the newly launched site better portrays the Living Legacy Foundation’s brand and makes it easier for non-technical staff to keep web content fresh and up-to-date. 

“We are extremely proud to partner with The Living Legacy Foundation in pursuing its mission to promote organ donation,” said Ric Hughes, president and CEO of Systems Alliance. “We value the opportunity to assist non-profits in pursuing their objectives. The Living Legacy Foundation relies heavily on its Web presence to educate the public and encourage donor designation, and we’re thrilled with the results of the website redesign project.”

The Living Legacy of Maryland is the federally designated organ procurement organization and licensed tissue bank for the state of Maryland excluding Prince George’s, Charles and Montgomery Counties. The Living Legacy Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, facilitates the donation and recovery of human organs and tissues for transplantation and research and is dedicated to providing advocacy, family support and comprehensive public and professional education.
