Client Spotlight - Lustgarten Foundation

System Assessment & Selection, Website Design & Development, Marketing Suite & Fundraising Platform Integration

Design with Purpose

The Lustgarten Foundation has a mission to advance research related to the diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of pancreatic cancer.

They recently went through an internal rebranding initiative which presented them with an opportunity to reassess their current technology suite.

Zuri Group partnered to assist with system selection and to design and code a website that integrates a suite of back-end and front-end platforms- providing a seamless user experience for donors, volunteers, staff, and the community impacted by pancreatic cancer that the Lustgarten Foundation serves.

A Fully-Integrated, End-to-end Solution

Long-time Blackbaud NetCommunity and Sphere users, the Lustgarten team embraced the opportunity to explore new technology options. Through extensive analysis, demonstrations, and review, they decided to move forward with Engaging Networks (eMarketing), Classy (donation forms, crowdfunding and peer-to-peer fundraising) and WordPress (CMS).

This suite of products provides the Lustgarten Foundation with the tools they need to support online fundraising and engagement initiatives, and the flexibility to modernize strategies that have already proven to be successful.

Data-Driven Design

Zuri Group knows that great design starts with a great user experience, so our redesign began in Google Analytics. Our analysts reviewed data to understand how visitors were currently interacting with the site, and identified opportunities for an improved user flow. They restructured site navigation, made content updates, and then handed things over to our incredible design team.

Our designers tied everything together with new layouts, tools and a custom WordPress theme. The design leverages industry best-practices in an easy-to-manage package that makes a big visual impact.

The end result is a modern website that puts UX (user experience) at the forefront and serves as a great resource for those impacted by pancreatic cancer– all without sacrificing eye-catching design.
