Learn About the Client

The Jo Daviess Community Foundation serves as a catalyst for giving in order to attract, preserve, and grow a permanent endowment for the needs of the people of Jo Daviess County in northwestern Illinois. Our mission is to foster and encourage private philanthropic giving to improve the communities of the northwestern Illinois region by connecting charitable donors with worthy causes and to build permanent endowment funds that will support those worthy causes.

The Challenges

In March 2017, we were contacted by foundation members to design a website for upstart Jo Daviess Community Foundation. At the time of initial contact, organization did not have a brand identity, web presence, or any content.

Jo Daviess Community Foundation requested service to construct an easily accessible, engaging, and simply designed website. The new layout we selected is a one-page scrolling, wide-screen format that is effective for businesses and organizations. The layout accommodates visual engagement, text and informational organization, and ease of navigation and usage. It is mobile friendly and responsive, and built to withstand the changing landscapes of the internet for the next several years.
