Design and Launch of a Game Changing Funding Platform

A Smarter Way to Give

Benefunder is fueling innovation by allowing donors to fund causes that matter to them. They facilitate connections with today’s top researchers who are working on breakthrough discoveries that are impacting our world.

Through its Charitable Innovation Fund, Benefunder works with donors and the nation’s top researchers across all fields of study, including healthcare and life sciences, advanced technologies, the environment, and the arts and humanities.

By incorporating a portfolio-based, planned giving vehicle, they allow donors and researchers to build meaningful relationships using the disciplines of wealth management in a way that facilitates long-term funding and low overhead. Benefunder’s Donor Advised Fund solution allows flexibility, convenience, and discretion, while allowing assets to grow in the markets until they are deployed.

From improved treatments for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease to thwarting cyber criminals, creating more efficient renewable energies, protecting our world’s ecosystems, and exploring new possibilities in space, we allow donors to fund what matters most to them.

Brand Evolution

Benefunder came to MJD needing a full rebranding of their organization. We overhauled the look and feel of Benefunder from the ground up. We created a new style guide, bringing in a new color scheme, typography, grid system and image assets.

Next we tackled the User Experience. We determined their distinct user Personas and organized the site to make it easy for those folks to find the information they need. Wireframes led to HTML prototypes, allowing the team to click through the site before the heavy lifting of developing the content management system began.

Making a Difference

It’s always an amazing thing to work on a project that really is changing the world for the better. We were especially honored when we heard from Christian Braemer, Benefunder’s CEO, upon the launch of the site. His words say it better than ours could:

“I cannot say enough about the site you guys have built for us, I’m quite literally speechless! This is going to completely transform the way we’re perceived in the marketplace and position us exactly the way we want to be perceived with our target audience. Thanks you for all that hard work and attention to detail along the way. You guys have been great to work with and I look forward to continuing to do so as we evolve and grow for years to come!

I want you guys to know that your hard work and ‘going the extra mile’ will have major benefits to humanity and our planet! A big thank you from the Benefunder team!”

– Christian Braemer, CEO/Co-Founder, Benefunder

Meaningful Connections

At MJD we are striving to give meaning to the digital connections between people. We aim to elicit emotion when someone uses a digital product, experience or platform that we’ve designed and built. It could be something simple like a beautifully designed user interface that makes working with a smartphone exceptionally easy. It could be something hard like creating a Store of the Future where little girls can fall in love with a doll and be inspired to create their own strong path in this big world.

Digital Innovation Agency

Digital innovation is disrupting entire industries, transforming consumer behavior and influencing the way people interact with brands and products. In our 24/7 world, companies are leveraging digital technologies to create tremendous value, efficiencies and new revenue models while their customers expect ever more personalized and engaging experiences.
