Excellence & Innovation

Visit Site

The Ian Potter Foundation is a major Australian philanthropic foundation that supports and promotes excellence and innovation. As a part of a digital evolution strategy, a new responsive site was needed to continue attracting the best quality grant applications. The site also needed to increase stakeholder engagement through relevant and interactive content.

Soul+Wolf developed a fully responsive website with a large-format design to reflect their truly unique grant-making philosophy. The new site positions the foundation at the forefront of Australian philanthropy.

The Goal

Soul+Wolf understood that the Foundation's primary goal was to support charitable organisations by providing grants and various other entitlements. In order to facilitate a smooth user experience for these organisations to enquire and apply for grants, the user journey had to be seamless. 

Using a custom-built SilverStripe Multisite module, we enabled The Ian Potter Foundation to share assets and manage content across three different websites via one easy-to-use CMS.

The Solution

Architecturally, the solution had to walk users through the grant process and the foundation's prerequisites in a manner that was intuitive and easy-to-use. The ability to manage grant content and inherently, the ability for users to apply within certain time frames was of the utmost importance to The Ian Potter Foundation team. 

As a result, Soul+Wolf constructed a Grants' 'Database', whereby all grants past, present and future could be recorded and turned on within their respective funding round by any website Administrator. 

Taking the above into account, Soul+Wolf was then able to merge and migrate two other Foundation websites:

  • The Ian Potter Moving Image Commission
  • The George Alexander Foundation

Using a custom-built SilverStripe Multisite module, we enabled The Ian Potter Foundation to share assets and manage content across three different websites via one easy-to-use CMS.
