Donate for a New ASGPP Website

$625 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 5 people in 3 months
Dear Colleagues,

The ASGPP Executive Council and the Fundraising Committee are announcing this fundraising event for an urgent issue.  ASGPP immediately needs a new WEBSITE!

History:
The ASGPP website was built on a platform called 1&1 IONOS (formerly 1&1 Internet). The platform was created in 1988 by a web hosting company owned by United Internet, a German Internet company. The platform has been providing ASGPP with the following services: Domain name registration; Website builder, Email, Web and an Internet Forum (a message board or an online discussion site) hosting.

What is the problem:
For the last several months, the platform performance has slowly but surely been degrading and crashing. Some examples are: basic things that should work, do not; form-functioning failed errors with unknown error source; damaged files and links; the need of ongoing maintenance mode after an upgrade; interruptions and conflicts between existing plugins, the upgrade and the custom coding.

What we have experienced:
The submitted data through the forms (e.g. membership application, conference registration, etc.) has been getting lost; passwords for the “Membership Only” page and the Internet Forum are not functioning; issues with registration and payment options; links not working or being accessed only through certain browsers or computer systems.

How we have handled the problem:
We have created an alternative platform for payments and data submission and analyses; not always user friendly, but providing a temporary solution.

What we fear:
The ASGPP website and email server may crash hard, which could lead to an inability to communicate and stay connected. We don’t know how long that condition could last.  

What we need:
To hire a web development firm that will migrate from the old to a new secure platform and system, to handle the ASGPP website, email, forum, listserv.

What we have done so far:
The problems were examined; various web professionals were consulted, a task force was formed to assess the problem, determine our needs, and gather various bids for the website migration.  
 
The issue is urgent and we need to take immediate action. The guesstimate cost of the entire website creation, setup and migration of current data is $15,000.00. We need to raise the amount by the end of March, 2019 to ensure we have a stable website.

Please consider donating for this highly important cause!

Any donation amount will be deeply appreciated! If every member donates even a small amount, together we will make this possible! As ASGPP is a tax exempt, non-profit, charitable organization that falls under section 501(c)(3), your donations will be considered a deductible contribution for your taxes.
