Philanthropy Round Table Website Design and Development

Philanthropy  Roundtable

The Philanthropy Roundtable is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Washington, DC. Its mission is to foster excellence in philanthropy, to protect philanthropic freedom, to assist donors in achieving their philanthropic intent, and to help donors advance liberty, opportunity, and personal responsibility. The design challenges included providing better visual organization and clear navigation that delineated different subsites, while keeping a cohesive but distinctive look. The technological challenge was to provide a content management system (CMS) that would allow easy content entry and site
editing, so the client wouldn’t have to rely on a developer when the site needed to be updated.

The Solution

The most important decision had to be made early: which CMS to use? Given the complexity of the site, the multiple microsites, and the functionality that was in the scope of work, we suggested that Sitefinity would be a great fit. This CMS could provide robust, global, faceted site search that included an integrated index from an additional Philanthropy site (Alliance for Charitable Reform) and a multimedia library cross-linked to the organization’s magazine and the Almanac. The design incorporated a global navigation that allowed for consistent and easy access to the main and subsites. The design also supported their brand and provided a comprehensive visual with variations to make each subsite distinguishable. The content was designed for clear hierarchy to make it easier for users to access the information they needed.
