J.M. Kaplan Fund

From our Portfolio

The J.M. Kaplan Fund promotes initiatives to foster city life, the environment, historic preservation, and migrations in the New York area and beyond. The J.M. Kaplan Fund was established in 1945 by businessman and philanthropist Jacob Merrill Kaplan.

Continuing our work designing and building websites for Foundations and philanthropic organizations, Social Ink worked directly with the J.M. Kaplan Fund to reinvigorate their web presence, transitioning their old, static HTML site to a dynamic, easy-to-update CMS. Thinking through foundation-specific issues regarding access, grant areas, and transparency, the rebuilt site allows the foundation to take pre-emptive steps to filter potential grant seekers while providing news and updates regarding their work and progress. Project details include grant and document archiving, custom slideshows, and custom overview sections and application forms.

Our ongoing relationship provides updates, backups, and as-needed maintenance and updates, while in-house staff have freedom over content entry and development.

Smokey House Center

From our Portfolio

Complete overhaul and redevelopment for this sustainable working farm and land-use center in rural Danby, Vermont.

A robust CMS framework powers their youth education and farming initiatives, with seasonal template changes, photo galleries, and product sale listings, as well as youth membership blogs.

WEDO, the Women’s Environment and Development Organization, is a New York City-based non-profit focusing on international women’s rights. Working together with the WEDO team, we planned and implemented a complete website overhaul, including visual identity and rebranding, a CMS-powered website, and an information architecture rebuild.

Key components of the website include slideshows and multimedia, a filter-based library, events calendar, and distinct sections for themes, initiatives, and press.

We continue to have an ongoing relationship with the fine folks at WEDO, adding functionality and new sections as necessary.

Social Ink has been in NYC since 2007!
