Mott.org Website Redesign (Sitecore)
The C. S. Mott Foundation needed a long-term solution to communicate with and service a diverse set of audiences. Beaconfire created a durable website vision with the Foundation that included a site architecture and design that could grow in time, as well as a new content management system (Sitecore) for improved and expanded content delivery. The design and architecture more clearly reflect the Foundation’s mission and commitment to delivering features and content their priority audiences need.
The site has expanded to include an easy-to-explore Resource Central section that brings together stories, press releases, video, audio, and other assets by topic. Other additions include RSS feeds by topic, iTunes podcasting, and a GrantsFire feed for sharing grant information with other organizations and sites directly. The Grantee Toolbox integrates Sitecore and Sharepoint to allow grantees to login to see their grants, reporting deadlines, and view, review and submit documents for their grant.
Creating an extensible solution for a mission focused on sustainability.
The Foundation work included:
- Information Architecture
