Case Study: Community Foundation of Sarasota County - From Clutter to Clarity with Engaging Features and Rich Media

Established in 1979, the Community Foundation of Sarasota County (CFSC) has consistently bridged the gap between individual philanthropic passions and the achievement of charitable objectives. Their guiding principle, "Be the One," embodies the conviction that everyone has the potential to make a philanthropic impact, irrespective of financial capacity. Despite their active engagement in the community through numerous events and programs, CFSC's digital presence was not reflective of their significant impact.

A User-Centric Redesign

The main challenge faced by CFSC was a website burdened with content overload, making navigation cumbersome and user engagement suboptimal. Additionally, the website lacked effective search and filtering tools, crucial for users to easily explore, engage, and contribute to the hundreds of available charitable funds. Moreover, despite producing a wealth of dynamic content like videos and podcasts, their website infrastructure did not facilitate easy updates, thereby not showcasing the true extent of their community involvement.

Solution:  Morweb stepped in to revamp CFSC's digital facade. The approach was multifaceted:

  1. Streamlined Navigation:  The introduction of a streamlined mega menu ensures easy and intuitive website navigation.
  2. Enhanced Search Functionality:  Implementation of a powerful site search tool, enabling users to effortlessly find and contribute to specific funds.
  3. Integration of Nonprofit Modules:  Utilization of Morweb's specialized nonprofit modules, ensuring seamless integration and a superior user experience.
  4. Rich Media Compatibility: Upgrade of the website's architecture to facilitate easy updates with various forms of rich media, reflecting CFSC's dynamic community involvement.

Design Impact

The transformation led by Morweb resulted in a website that not only mirrored CFSC's profound community impact but also enhanced it. The improved digital platform now serves as a central hub for their extensive community engagement activities, resonating with their ethos of inclusive philanthropy. The new website architecture by Morweb has empowered CFSC to effectively communicate their mission, engage with a broader audience, and amplify their philanthropic reach.

What the client’s Say…

On behalf of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, I can strongly recommend considering Morweb for enhancing your current or future website. For nearly six months, we have worked closely with Sarah and her team to redesign and launch our new site, and we are quite satisfied with the end result!!

During the development phase, no matter how complex our requests or ideas were, Morweb would not hesitate to look for or develop a solution to meet our needs. Morweb’s willingness to transform our aspirations into reality was truly refreshing and a pleasure to be a part of. We chose to work with Morweb particularly due to its CMS software, which is simple to maneuver and learn, giving novices like myself the tools to make complicated updates to webpages with ease. Overall, we are proud to have worked with Morweb on this important project, and look forward to continuing and strengthening this relationship.
