The Broward College Foundation, established in 1971, provides funding for scholarship opportunities, educational enhancements, and academic programs at Broward College. With the launch of their American Dream campaign, a website refresh was the perfect way to showcase all they’ve done already, and all they can do, with contributions from the community.
The new site places the emphasis on the most important part of the Foundation; the people that comprise it. Donors, alumni, and students come to life with compelling videos that capture the spirit of the American Dream campaign.
Being a charitable organization, donations are the lifeblood of the foundation. The streamlined navigation centers on the key points of the foundation’s mission, the lives it helps to impact, and the numerous ways donors can contribute.

We hope to have conveyed the chief message at the core of the organization: how empowering people through education can change lives.
