The Collectors Foundation

The Collectors Foundation Uses eVolve by eTapestry® to Create a Branded Website That Provides Easy Content Management and Online Fundraising

Established in 2005, the Collectors Foundation is a philanthropic movement among collector vehicle and boat enthusiasts supporting young people and the future interests of these hobbies. The Foundation awards scholarships and educational grants to organizations committed to hands-on education and making a difference in the lives of young people through the appeal of historic vehicles and vessels, building the next generation of collectors.


  • Because the Collectors Foundation focuses on building the next generation of collector enthusiasts, the organization needed a way to connect with people who are passionate about historic vehicles.
  • To facilitate this goal, the Foundation had a website, but the website was static and required technical experience to make updates and changes.
  • Adding to the challenge, the Foundation has only one employee with limited resources.


  • The Collectors Foundation decided to find a website solution provider that could help build, design, and host the Foundation’s website so that staff could focus on developing meaningful content and campaigns.
  • The Collectors Foundation selected eVolve from eTapestry®, a complete online fundraising solution that includes graphic design, giving and event registration forms, email tools, and more.
  • Because eVolve is fully hosted, the eTapestry team handles all of the care and maintenance for the site, ensuring it is always available and operational.


  • Easy to handle: eVolve has made it easy for the Collectors Foundation to update its website and allows users to make changes quickly without having a background in technology.
  • All working together: eVolve includes full integration with an eTapestry database, which means that the Foundation’s donation and gift information moves smoothly from the website into the constituent database.
  • Growing together: The Foundation can add on a variety of functions and benefits as its online fundraising goals change, which means that the organization’s website will grow as it grows.
