Salford-based media agency Interdirect has re-designed the website for local grant-making charity, Milton Keynes Community Foundation.
Milton Keynes Community Foundation, an independent charity, has been awarding funding to community groups and disadvantaged people across the region for 25 years. To fund its grant making, Milton Keynes Community Foundation relies on donations from both local families and organisations who have made a long term commitment to support the city, so it is a vital link between people in Milton Keynes that are able to give and those who are most in need.
Interdirect has supported Milton Keynes Community Foundation for a number of years, with managing director and founder Nicholas Mann standing as a proud ambassador for the foundation. The redesign, which has been completed over a twelve month period, refreshes the former rigid and structured site to provide increased functionality for users and administrators. With SiteMachine, Interdirect’s bespoke content management system, providing the building blocks, Milton Keynes Community Foundation now has complete control of its website; from structure and content management to the capability to crop, place and resize images.
The Milton Keynes Community Foundation homepage has been built with ease of navigation in mind and has a fresh feel and innovative look. The design focuses on the brand’s vibrant colours, which aim to captivate and engage the charity’s audience.
With the latest stories now on the homepage, users can see what the charity is up to across the region at first glance, as well as donating to the foundation at the click of a button through the new integrated ‘Donate Now’ option displayed on each page throughout the website.
Nicholas Mann, managing director and founder of Interdirect says: “We have always supported projects across Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas that give something back to the communities in which we live and work in. Interdirect has a valuable relationship with Milton Keynes Community Foundation and will continue to support the foundation with future website developments.”
Sarah Sweet-Rowley, marketing manager at Milton Keynes Community Foundation says: “We are delighted with our new site. We refreshed our brand at the start on this year to mark the celebration of our 25th birthday and our new website completes the final stage of this project. We wanted a new website that was fresh, easy to use, campaign driven and on-brand, and we’re very pleased that we now have all these things and more. We greatly value our relationship with Interdirect and we extend very grateful thanks to the team behind our site.”
