Graduation - The New Website


CPE’s previous website had an outdated design, was loaded with content, and was difficult to navigate. Their new site needed to match the excellence of their recently designed logo.


CEP’s new website is easy to navigate, has a beautiful design, and has made it easy both for new mentors to volunteer and for new donors to get involved.

Website Goal 1

Setting Up for Success

One important goal for CPE’s new website was to advertise and streamline sign-up for the mentoring program. Interested mentors now have access to the program’s mechanics and the potential impact of their participation before applying. A new “What it takes to be a mentor” page and extensive new content on the impact of mentorship makes this possible. The application is built into the website and available on the header as well. 

Website Goal 2

Embarking upon the Future

The final step of their website journey? Search Engine Optimization. Through extensive keyword research, incorporation of keywords into website content, and integration of the YOAST SEO plugin, Capital Partners for Education is easily discoverable online. Now, CPE is ready to embark on the next stage of their nonprofit’s journey. The new brand and streamlined mentoring process will help CPE continue to impact DC youths’ lives for the better. 

“Working with Elevation Web, and in particular our project manager, Alura, was a great experience. Our new look matches our new brand. Due to Elevation's experience working solely with nonprofit organizations, they were able to bring our mission and impact to the forefront of each page. ”
