Homepage with hierarchy
Leaning hard on visual hierarchy, we created order and balance between featured stories, latest articles, promotional information and related content.
Robust donation system
Custom donation system including monthly and one-time donations, gift management for different giving levels, and notifications. All on one page!
Custom promotion pages
Using our flexible donation system, the client can create new donation pages for special offers and events.

A map of their own
This custom map uses the Google Maps API to show where in the U.S. stories have taken place, by both region and city.
Informative article pages
Keeping the focus on the content, we added layers of information and in-site linking to each article page. Plus, a gorgeous image gallery that creates itself from images in the story.
Custom work to publish on Facebook instant articles, Google AMP, and Apple News.
