Established in 1974, the Law Foundation of Ontario is a non-profit organization with a mandate to help more people to understand the law and use it to improve their lives. The Law Foundation of Ontario takes an active and engaging approach to their work as a grant maker and to carry out their mandate of advancing access to justice. The Foundation works with and gives out over $1B in grants to hundreds of carefully selected grantees and to Legal Aid Ontario.
The Foundation sought to create a seamless experience for all its users and take its grantee engagement into a new digital era. The website's information architecture was fragmented, the branding outdated and the overall user experience was poor. The website failed to meet WCAG 2.0 Level AA requirements.
As a result, the Law Foundation aimed to reconstruct its outdated digital platform with a full rebrand and refreshed creative redesign, while incorporating tools that would facilitate greater organizational efficiency.
