The Challenge

As a not-for-profit organisation, fundraising plays a crucial part in ensuring Jodi Lee Foundation continue the work that they do. The core web application that was being used for these fundraising activities was a Content Management System (CMS) called Drupal.

Although powerful, their implementation of Drupal was clunky to work with and simple tasks ended up requiring significant manual effort to complete.

Every step of the fundraising process (managing the number of events, registrations, processing donations etc.) was time intensive and very inefficient, resulting in increased labour costs.

Our Solution

Working closely with Jodi Lee Foundation, we gained a deep understanding of how their business operated. This allowed us to provide tailored advice on how to tackle this challenge head on.

Through our analysis of their processes, we concluded that there were more suitable and efficient systems available that better aligned with the way that JLF operated and would assist them in achieving their vision. As a forward thinking not-for-profit, they needed to have the flexibility to grow and move with their target audience, and implement any changes efficiently.

We proposed two things:

  1. That they move away from Drupal and to another Content Management System (CMS) called WordPress. WordPress was much better suited to the skill set of their team, which allowed them to more easily manage their website content as they needed.
  2. To develop a custom web application to provide a streamlined user experience and to significantly increase the efficiency of managing events, registrations and donations.

The Result

Today, their fundraising and event management processes has changed dramatically.

People wanting to join a JLF fundraising event as a participant can log onto their website, select the campaign they would like to join and enter their details directly. For fundraising, they are also able to share their profile directly to their personal networks, where people can make payments directly on the website.
