An Organization Dedicated to Increasing Philanthropy

National Philanthropic Trust (NPT) provides philanthropic expertise through the use of donor-advised funds. They came to us with three objectives: promote their brand, inform potential clients about their services, and convert users who arrived at their site through web searches.

After using our in-house tools to analyze the web traffic within their markets, we focused on positioning their website for greater visibility and higher conversion rates. During our research, we discovered that NPT had an opportunity to capitalize on their niche market: donor advised funds. We helped them generate content and interactive experiences around that topic, creating a History of Giving Timeline, an interactive grant making map, and interactive charts that highlight the value of NPT funds.
