Thank you so much for yesterday's webinar - it was incredibly informative. We just recently launched our new website and we are still tweaking it a bit, but we would love to have one of the panelists take a look and offer some recommendations.

I'm glad you enjoyed the webinar. And congrats on launching your site. Here are my thoughts:
(1) Beautiful logo and placement of it. But your tagline is hard to read. I'd make that clearer.
(2) Great call to get folks to leave their email address. But I'd make the call more compelling than signing up for a mailing list. Most folks won't do that. What about: Get stories about our work inspiring creativity.
(3) Great choice of photos.
(4) I'm a firm believer in show not tell. So instead of your mission statement, I would include an inspiring story of a child or adult whose life has been transformed by your programs. A photo with 75 words and a link to read more would be a great way to show your mission in action rather than just state it.
(5) On a sidenote, I think it would be cool if you offered a creative tip of the week on your site or blog.

That is wonderful to hear Katya! We have undergone a lot of changes in the last year moving from a founder driven organization to hiring an Executive Director. I hope you are able to check us out again in the future!
