Case Study: Big Brothers Big Sisters Cedar Rapids
With guidance from the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America national office, BBBS of Cedar Rapids participated in the pilot program for ZEN Solutions. This included a new peer-to-peer fundraising site for Bowl for Kids’ Sake, with responsive design and customizable design templates.
Zuri Group developed a mobile-optimized 15-page event website on the Engaging Networks platform that encompassed all the needs for a successful BFKS event. Both back-end and front-end use of the site is much more intuitive than the previous system.
The ZEN Solutions user experience is cleaner, streamlined, responsive, and gets results.
The move resulted in more fundraiser registrations and less staff support time. The ability to customize the site colors and design are beneficial in building branding, and the client likes how it aligns with their overall marketing.
With the streamlined user-experience and less staff effort, BBBS of Cedar Rapids had a very successful Bowl For Kids’ Sake event, raising over $300,000.
