What did Union Capital Boston need?

Mariam helped Union Capital Boston assess whether or not their current website is optimally supporting its mission and goals, and outline the scope for needed changes and improvements.

Why is this project important?

We are in a critical stage of growth. We are a start-up nonprofit organization, which is just code for: perpetually broke. How is a mission-driven organization supposed to demonstrate its impact before it has had time to have an impact? However, at 3 years in, we have enough outputs, results, and even preliminary outcomes to be getting some recognition from big names. The first point of reference people have for a company is often their marketing materials, and in the 21st century, what is more pervasive than the website? Let's make sure it's on point!

This project will save us $4,762, allowing us to provide rewards to our members for over 6,000 hours of community engagement.
