Spirit Mountain Community Fund
Website for a major Oregon funder
The Spirit Mountain Community Fund is the philanthropic arm of the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde, and is one of Oregon’s largest funders of non-profits. Their old website confused grant applicants, and Fund staff struggled with poorly constructed applications. Additionally, the Tribe’s distinctive spirit, its achievements, and its leadership role in social change in Oregon were obscured. To top it off, staff members had only minimal control over the content.

Blue Mouse Monkey tackled these problems with a complete reorganization and rewriting of content, total visual redesign, and a new, easy-to-use CMS (Content Management System). As one of the focus group participants said, “I’ve started the application process  twice before, and each time I gave up because I got so confused. You’ve laid it out all really clearly and I finally understand what to do!”

We were thrilled to work with SMCF, and help them help so many of Oregon’s non-profits do the great work they do.
