Baron Davenport’s Charity has unveiled a new look website that will enhance the digital experience enjoyed by its supporters.
Baron Davenport’s Charity provides grants to organisations supporting children and young people or older people, plus almshouses, hospices and individuals. Grants are awarded within the West Midlands area. The respected charity decided to keep it local by appointing Jewellery Quarter-based agency IE Digital to deliver a new charity website and a refreshed visual identity.
Baron Davenport’s Charity has invested in a leading grants management system, which is supported by the new website and an online application process. The investment is designed to make the bi-annual application and grant giving processes more efficient and effective for applicants and for the charity’s administrative team.
The website is built on the Drupal content management system (CMS). The site is fully responsive, ensuring it works well on a range of devices and screens – from desktop PCs through to mobile phones and tablets. A simplified information architecture clarifies who is eligible for grants and encourages more compliant grant requests, to maximise the benefit and ensure grants are allocated where they will have the greatest impact.
Kate Slater, Charity Administrator for Baron Davenport’s Charity commented: “We’re delighted with the new website. As charity website experts, IE Digital demonstrated their understanding of our requirements and created something simple but effective. We found their consultants extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and we really appreciated their friendly, personable approach.”
