First Nations Development Institute improves economic conditions for Native Americans through direct financial grants, technical assistance & training, and advocacy policy. Over the past 40 years, the organization has distributed more than 1,600 grants totaling $35 million across the country. Additionally they host events, sponsor programs, conduct trainings, and do more for the Native American community.
First Nations came to NMC, looking for the firm to substantially raise their digital profile by attractively portraying their work and engaging stakeholders. NMC leveraged its experience in non-profit website design to help create a best in class website for the organization. NMC met with the organization upfront and guided them through a detailed digital discovery process, full visual language design, technical review of their previous technical infrastructure, and ultimate development of the site. The reception has been exceedingly positive, leading to additional collaboration, including NMC designing supporting microsites for First Nations' initiatives.
