Lifewater International is a San Luis Obispo, CA based non-profit organization that implements clean water and sanitation programs worldwide. Lifewater sought out Motion Tactic to re-develop their entire website to support a new crowdfunding model that allows users to team together and fund individual projects while getting real-time updates on the status of the project they helped fund. This is a website that is first of its kind in the non-profit sector, and we are very proud of our ability to build this platform for Lifewater International.
Crowd Source Giving Campaigns
Lifewater worked with us to create an all new giving experience for their website visitors – allowing them to donate online and track the progress of the project they’ve supported. With this new giving experience, Lifewater can automate the creation of campaigns and expidite the funding process to give access to water for those in need.
We developed a series of automated features that receive information about new projects from Netsuite and create records in the WordPress database. This prevents the need for projects to be manually created multiple times by field team members. Once a project is ready for funding, both the project and giving campaign are created. In addition, any images uploaded to their cloud storage (related to this project) will be added automatically in WordPress.
Custom GiveWP Experience
Lifewater’s need for a custom-branded experience led us to push the boundaries on what WordPress giving-solutions typically offer. We developed all custom templates for users to complete their donation and manage their profile.
Lifewater worked with us to add a custom map integration to their current website. The idea was to create a mapping system that plots where all water points, healthy homes/villages, and healthy schools that Lifewater has helped are located. Our team partnered with Lifewater’s leadership to create a solution that connects the visual points on the map to a database in real-time. Lifewater is able to gather data on communities through their staff that are based in Ethiopia, Uganda, and Cambodia. Staff members enter community data into a database that the mapping system ultimately draws from.
