November 24, 2009—New York, NY—Jewish National Fund (JNF) was presented with the Innovator Award in the Best Website category for its strategy and development of its new website at the fourth annual Convio Client Summit in Austin, TX.
"JNF has always been a leader in online fundraising among Jewish non-profits," said Bud Levin, vice president of marketing for JNF. "It is gratifying to be recognized in the greater philanthropic world."
Partnering with Convio's Client Success Services group, JNF redesigned its website after 10-months of stakeholder and constituent research to create a more dynamic, personalized experience. The new site has enabled the creation of new online initiatives to improve education and awareness, while leveraging integrated fundraising tools to better engage donors and create a consistent web presence across all online properties.
“We are delighted to be recognized as the Best Website category award winner as we have seen significant improvement in our success and awareness since launching our new site,” said Linda Wenger, executive director of marketing and communications at JNF. “With the site redesign and enhanced online tools, we can now better interact with our established supporter base, as well as engage a new generation of younger, more web-savvy supporters that we were not able to reach in the past.”
Nine other nonprofits received Innovator Awards from Convio, the leading provider of online marketing, fundraising, advocacy and constituent relationship management software and services to nonprofit organizations.
