The Caritas Association of the Archdiocese of Munich-Freising in Upper Bavaria consists of more than 350 institutions such as homes for the elderly, nursing services, day care centres for children, support and residential homes for disabled citizens, assistance for people with a migration background and many more. The association has more than 9,000 employees.
Conceptual design, planning and implementation of a website for the Caritas donation portal using the client's existing Pimcore setup. Due to the great importance of donations for Caritas, a separate portal was to be created for this purpose, which offers an overview of all Caritas donation projects and opportunities and, through the integration of the Altruja donation software as well as the implementation of a new donation module, enables simple and direct donations. Another requirement within the project was the desired content migration of approx. 60 pages including the associated metadata.
DGTLS took over the complete organisational, graphic and technical implementation of the project for Caritas, from conception to project management. The graphic and IT departments designed and programmed (front- and backend) a new, interactive donation module, an own, clearly arranged mega menu as well as an own teaser to introduce the different donation projects from the Caritas institution websites. These pages are managed in the same Pimcore instance and thus allow easy cross-linking. Furthermore, a link to the Altruja donation software was made via an extended iframe integration with custom styles in order to seamlessly integrate into the website in terms of visual appearance and content, thus giving users a feeling of trust and security for their donation.
After the implementation of the project, the Caritas donation portal can now be found under the domain spenden.caritas-nah-am-naechsten.de with a clear content and visual focus on the topic of "donations". Tidy, emotional and with clear CTAs, the new website pays tribute to the goal of generating donations, which is so important for our client. With just one click, the user can go directly from the homepage or the subpages to the option of making a donation. Last but not least, a user-friendly usability and the clear design simplify navigation and research on the new Caritas donation portal, even for older users.
