What did Wyck Historic House, Garden, and Farm need?

Bill helped Wyck Historic House, Garden, and Farm * Making appropriate technology decisions, and determining what technology services, applications, and infrastructure to put in place in order to increase the efficiency of its daily operations

Why is this project important?

We have been growing for the past six years, adding staff and programmatic activities. But our technology has lagged behind and is really interfering with our productivity at this point. As the Executive Director, I can no longer expect my staff to work (well or happily) with our current technology--despite their passion and enthusiasm for the work we do.

This project will save us $5,000, allowing us to Serve 400 children, seniors, and families with our Farmers Market and its related programs.

About Wyck Historic House, Garden, and Farm

The Wyck Association tells the story of Wyck, the quietly elegant home, historic gardens, farm buildings, and collection of objects and papers that reflect the everyday life of one Philadelphia family over three hundred years. Programs at Wyck draw on this family’s passion for education, its Quaker simplicity, and its love of natural history and horticulture. Through the preservation and interpretation of this rare resource, the Wyck Association works to enrich and strengthen community life.
