Company named Outstanding Small Corporation for charitable work through “C-3 Cares” initiative

The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), Greater Dayton Region Chapter recently announced that the C-3 Group has been selected as an Outstanding Small Corporation co-honoree. We are absolutely thrilled, honored, and humbled to receive this recognition.

The Outstanding Small Corporation Award honors a small business or corporation that demonstrates outstanding commitment through financial support and through encouragement and motivation of others to take leadership roles toward philanthropy and community involvement. The C-3 Group was nominated for the award by our 2016 C-3 Cares partner, St. Vincent de Paul Dayton.

We began C-3 Cares in 2013 with the goal of giving something back to the many deserving and wonderful organizations that work hard every day to make Dayton a better place to live, work, and play. We’re proud that we’ve been able to help the real heroes in our community in our own little way.

The C-3 Group will be honored at the annual National Philanthropy Day luncheon on Tuesday, November 15 at the Sinclair Community College Ponitz Center. Tickets for the luncheon will be available for purchase at www.afpdayton.org/npd.html.

In 2016, we provided St. Vincent de Paul Dayton with various pro-bono marketing services. St. Vincent de Paul delivers vital services to homeless and impoverished individuals and families in the Greater Dayton area, serving over 100,000 people each year.

We’re excited to continue the C-3 Care initiative into 2017. If you are a nonprofit organization or charity with marketing needs, or know of one, we encourage you to apply.

New Website Launch: Roberson Law

Dayton Law Website Design

Refreshed Website for Roberson Law.

We recently launched a new website for Roberson Law, based in Dayton, Ohio. C-3 was able to work with Roberson Law to provide a fresh, clean, modern look, on a scaleable platform. The site also included a content management system that was easy to use and expand the site as needed.

Over the past few years, Roberson’s previous website required significant additional content to be added by their company’s web administrator but the framework was not set up for such expansion. This caused the website to become cluttered as more and more information was included. Roberson also utilizes content marketing strategies through their blog, and collects email addresses through the website to keep in touch with their customers.

With the shift to websites being viewed more and more on mobile devices every day, it was also important to provide a site that was easily visible and fully functional on mobile phones and tablets.

The owner, Nancy Roberson, has won numerous professional and humanitarian awards and is a frequent speaker at events around the area and beyond. The firm is over 30 years old and provides an exceptional level of expertise and experience in estate planning, elder and probate law.

Take a look at the new Roberson Law website.
