We recently had the pleasure to work with the California Bipolar Foundation, a non profit organization dedicated to research, care & support services, and public education regarding Bipolar Disorder. Their previous website was doing little to help their cause, the new website is an information hub for donors, volunteers, staff members and the people & families affected by Bipolar Disorder.
The focal point of the new homepage are the clear calls to action: Get Help, Volunteer & Donate. There is also a clear mailing list signup and contact us button. The Foundation now has the ability to blog, add events to their online calendar and create photo galleries. The website has become a communication tool for CBF to keep in touch with people at all levels of involvement.
A big part of the Foundation's efforts go into fundraising for their research grants. The website enables CBF to promote their upcoming fundraising events and share information about previous grant recipients. They also have made available their grant application in PDF format so researchers from around the state can download the application.
CBF's new website allows them the freedom to create and edit many types of content in order to keep the website up-to-date with information on support group meetings, events and news. This allows CBF to spend less time going back and forth with a web developer and more time training volunteers and offering support services.
