The Charity Starter Kit was inspired by the Microsoft GiveCamp and was designed to provide a quick but complete website for a non-profit organization. It includes all the typical features of a website, as well as helpful widgets to add new functionality and social connectivity.
By default the login for the Starter Kit user is admin and the password is password.
The Charity Starter Kit includes a professional designed theme with an elegant, customizable banner. Multiple templates are available for different layout needs, all inheriting from the base template and theme.
The full master page and theme files are also made available in the project. This allows you to quickly and easily modify both the overall layout and the design to suit your website's needs.
The Charity Starter Kit includes a helpful set of sample pages that cover the typical needs of a public website, including News, About Us, and Contact Us.
There is also a Calendar of Events with two different views, a list view and a calendar view. Each individual event page also features a Reminder link, allowing you to add an iCal reminder to your calendar.
Every bit of sample content can be modified easily from the Sitefinity Dashboard or the new in-line edit feature.
A wide assortment of widgets are available in the Charity Starter Kit, extending Sitefinity with some helpful tools and features.
These drag-and-drop widgets help you easily connect your site to a number of social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Flickr. All you need is your user name or ID to instantly add social content to your page.
A helpful map widget brings the power of Bing Maps to the Charity Starter Kit. The editor allows you to specify a location by address, automatically geocoding the location for use by the map.
The Charity Starter Kit includes a helpful iCal feed widget, allowing your users to subscribe to your entire event calendar with the click of a button.
The Calendar View control is also included with full source so you can modify it to suit your needs or use it in your own Sitefinity sites.
One of the most important needs for a non-profit website is the ability to accept donations from visitors. The PayPal Donation Widget allows you to quickly add this feature to your site. The only setup required is an email address registered with PayPal.
The Charity Starter Kit is just one of many options to help you quickly get started with Sitefinity 4. It is available both as a trial download as well as the free online sandbox. Although the kit is target as non-profit websites, the included source code and widgets will prove helpful to take any website to the next level with Sitefinity
