City Connect Detroit: Website CMS

City Connect Detroit (CCD) is a non-profit organization that solves local problems by facilitating the cooperation between governments and other Detroit non-profits. They primarily aid these organizations in securing increased national funding. Since the agency’s establishment in 2001, they have focused on topics affecting children, families, and community health and development. CCD has organized more than 40 community problem-solving initiatives during its decade and a half of operation.

Before coming to Media Genesis, CCD did not have a CMS that met their needs and their website design and organization did not entice viewers to interact with or explore the content. The CCD needed a simpler website that was easy to interact with and accurately communicated their mission.

The process:

  • Recommended a WordPress CMS to provide CCD with flexibility and control over content and design improvements
  • Designed an all-new website that focused on enhancing the clarity of the CCD’s content and mission
  • Website features a dynamic calendar that displays events, permits event registration, and is connected to e-commerce functionality
  • Included e-commerce functionality that extends to the new online donations module that allows the website to intake donations through the chosen payment gateway
