Rotary Charities of Traverse City is soliciting proposals for the redesign of its website to enhance user experience, accommodate organizational growth, and ensure accessibility. 

Working in partnership with changemakers, Rotary Charities provides funding, learning, and connections to address our region’s complex problems and create community assets for all. We support 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations, Native nations, local units of government, and school districts that provide services in Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska and Leelanau counties.

The selected vendor will collaborate with Rotary Charities to develop a user-centric website that aligns with the organization's mission and goals. Rotary Charities is committed to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our operations, including procurement and contracting. We encourage proposals from businesses owned by women, veterans, and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) individuals.
