The website redesign strategy restored their mission statement and goals in a digital format that is easy to understand, mobile friendly, and targets a wide audience. By highlighting the four core initiatives, this defines the brand mission, and ties back to their giving model and charitable grants. Their impact is visible by showcasing their nationwide grantees with a grid of images that lead the user to learn more. The grantee section not only represents some of their charitable giving, but also allows for applicants to see how future grants can serve their community. Additionally, by integrating announcements, and a social component they are able to engage with their audience to share their mission.
