The Calgary Foundation facilitates collaborative philanthropy, connecting donors and community organizations with the long-term vision of building a better Calgary. We’ve worked with the Foundation to build these connections with digital and video.

Calgary Foundation
The Challenge
Through strategic partnerships and generous funders, the Calgary Foundation works to nurture a healthy, vibrant, giving and caring Calgary. With deep roots in the local community, initiatives focus on poverty reduction, pursuing a sustainable future, strengthening relationships with Indigenous communities, living a creative life and encouraging mental health. With so much great work going on in so many unique pockets of the city, the challenge for us was how to best tell that story.
The Solution
We worked with Calgary Foundation to rebuild their website. With an enhanced online presence, the Calgary Foundation reached twice as many Calgarians after launch as it did in previous years. The site (and related microsite) features various ways to build connections, including a Community Knowledge Centre, Jane's Walk website, Granting Stream Finder, and Student Award Search. The work follows the Calgary Foundation brand, and brings clear information architecture and sophisticated functionality online, allowing donors and donees alike to connect and work toward a better Calgary.
The Results
After launch, the Calgary Foundation more than doubled it's online audience. The new site functions as a home base and continues to grow with new initiatives being added yearly.
