COMING SOON: Show off your council and be FOUND online!

This program is under review with the KofC Supreme. We hope to be beginning the program in early 2020! 

We’re working at the Abbate Agency to better support councils online! We’ve partnered with our web design company, a KofC family run business, to help councils get online and increase communication with members, potential members, and the community at large.

 Link Existing Website

Happy with your existing council website? Great! Let’s increase communication and update links. Please click here so we can get your website linked to our council directory! 

Basic Website

We’ll set up a “shell” website with editable blocks for you to add council specific information and content. This is great if you have some basic website building knowledge! Your website will look like this.

One page on Virginiakofc.com (replacing the basic functions of UKnight that are most often used) The page will have the following council unique elements all on the one page:
a. Photo carousel
b. Council events calendar
c. Council meeting schedule and location
d. Council contact information
e. Information request (sent directly to council designee)
f. Council officers list
g. Council Links section (can include links to private google docs, paypal, etc…)
b. Knights of Columbus/Virginia State/Abbate Agency links for useful pages and videos set in the menu structure
c. Search engine optimization for the one page (so people can FIND the council)
d. Page is created by Virginiakofc.com, then user name and password given to council leadership to build the page
e. Edited by council with editor login
f. Address would be something like: www.virginiakofc.com/councils/111111
g. Domain forwarding can happen – e.g. www.council11111.com goes to the website
h. Initial setup: $100 – we set up the template and the council inputs all personal photos/details/etc…
i. Hosting: $10/mo or $100/year ($50 less than uKnight)
j. Ideal for a council that wants a polished online presence and is okay with a simple online presence and has some web know how.

Start here. 

Intermediate Website 

This is the same as basic but with us populating the initial website and doing an annual update when officers change.
a. Initial setup: $250 – the council fills out a submission form and we spend 1 hour of setup time to populate the information they provided at submission.
b. Hosting: $15/mo or $150/year
c. Ideal for a council that wants a polished online presence and is okay with a simple online presence and knows they need some help with their online updating.

Start here 

Deluxe Website 

Autonomous council site with interconnection to the main Virginia KofC site. Ideal for a council that wants to really maintain a unique web presence and has the time to do it. ALL elements would be editable directly by the council.

Initial elements would include:
a. Home page (similar to the council page outlined above)
b. Events page with calendar and registration form
c. Council information page
d. Photo albums
e. Information request
f. Private member zone for documents/content that is for members only
g. Dues and payments
h. Knights of Columbus/Virginia State/Abbate Agency links for useful pages and videos set in the menu structure
b. Search engine optimization for those pages
c. Address would be a subdomain: www.11111.virginiakofc.com
d. Domain forwarding can happen – e.g. www.council11111.com goes to the website
e. Initial setup: $500 (council does the inputting of their personal materials into the website, we provide the shell with the “replace text/picture here” spaces)
f. Hosting: $15/mo or $150/year
g. Additional web/graphic design as requested varies from $50/hr (basic graphics work and updates) to $150/hr (back end coding requests)
h. Ideal for a council that has some web knowledge and wants a robust website. This would also be an option for a council that doesn’t have web knowledge and wants to outsource a robust website, but we’d need to do an individual estimate based on what the council wants.

Contact us directly to discuss at admin@virginiakofc.com.

The goal is to increase knowledge about councils, communication of their good works, and make it easy for people to get involved and utilize the benefits of the Knights!

This program is under review with the KofC Supreme. We hope to be beginning the program in early 2020!
