Visual impairment charity’s new Web site to help it cut costs Howard Lake | 12 August 2004 | News Tagged with: Consulting & Agencies Digital The Macular Disease Society’s new Web site is designed to help it both raise funds and reduce administrative costs.The new site will be designed by new media agency Nemisys Enterprises which specialises in the not-for-profit sector. As well as building up the membership of the Society the site is designed to help the charity reduce distribution costs. Currently the society sends out 52,000 copies of its quarterly magazine ‘Side View’ by post each year, in large print and audio tape format. The new site will improve the availability of services by making them available online with downloadable documents and audio files. Over time, the charity believes that its members will choose to download this information rather than receive it by post, allowing it to invest the savings inother projects and research.
