This project's biggest challenge was to establish an internal system that would simplify the online form submissions and payments for both organizations. Doing so would help streamline partner relationships with other nonprofits and the community.
Secondly, bringing two sites into one CMS (WordPress) would better represent what both organizations do and make it more visually appealing as a charitable site.
Bringing the Two Into One
Combining both of the sites into one WordPress site helped bring the charitable arms of Matt Kaulig together.
Uniting both Kaulig Giving and The Kaulig Foundation not only enhanced the user experience but offered better exposure to what they do for the community as a whole and made it easier to represent essential partnerships.
The Kaulig Media team reimagined and redesigned the site to be brighter, more cheerful, and more accessible for users to navigate, including responsive design for mobile users.
We also relied on our team of photographers to create custom headshots that would mesh well with the redesigned site.
Simplifying the Process
With the recommendation of an industry partner, Kaulig Media discovered Foundant as the best solution for simplifying the user experience in submitting applications and receiving payment.
Foundant is a new technology system that's laser-focused on partnering with both funders and grant seekers to drastically improve the funding process. From start to finish, it handles grant applications, processing, and payments—precisely what both Kaulig Giving and The Kaulig Foundation needed.
Foundant took a cumbersome and complicated process and streamlined it into one digital platform where everything is automated, making it easier for both organizations to give back to the community.
