Akiva Hebrew Day School
For more than 40 years, Akiva Hebrew Day School has been providing a Jewish Orthodox Zionist college preparatory education to residents of the Detroit area. They instill a great love of Torah and a commitment to Israel and their dedication to the residents of their community is very well known. The organization is successful, but as with any non-profit group, funds are always needed in order for their work to continue.
The yeshiva decided to have a Chinese Auction as a fundraiser, but they wanted to reach out beyond their local neighborhood. With their web design by Bitochon they were able to reach out and draw bids from across the U.S. We built Akiva's website with great flexibility in mind. It features an e-commerce web design that allows different types of tickets to be purchased via credit card. The website accepts donations from anywhere in the world and at any time. Their Chinese Auction website development was a huge success because they were able to raise more money through the sale of tickets on their website. And they can reuse the website year after year for their annual Chinese Auction.
