A word from Key Medium's Founder.
Key Medium was created in 2014—with the idea of leveraging modern technology to help businesses, nonprofits, and government agencies better connect with their clientele, donors, and constituents. Not long after in 2017 we formalized Coding For Causes and took more of a focus on purpose-driven work. Now, one of the main goals of Coding For Causes and Key Medium is to create solutions and impactful experiences that lead to real, positive change that lasts. After all, every project we undertake is a demonstration of our ability to generate world-class work and maximize impact—together with our clients and their stakeholders—as partners.
What real people are saying about Coding for Causes.
As a beneficiary of Key Medium's Coding For Causes initiative, my educational nonprofit received a dynamic, premium website build from Ali and his talented team of experts. They worked with us to develop a content strategy and created a professional, responsive site that launched just weeks before Covid struck and was critical in allowing us to continue serving students remotely. By equipping our team with a communications platform that is user-friendly, interactive, and easily editable, Key Medium solved our prior website administration issues, provided us with a strong online presence, and allowed us to focus on our core mission.
Ali and the team at Key Medium have been fantastic to work with. Through the Coding for Causes grant, they launched a much more user-friendly and engaging website for my organization. I appreciate that they made their expertise accessible to us as a small nonprofit. They are very easy to engage with, answering our questions and responding to our requests and ideas in a very timely manner. The value Key Medium brought to our website upgrade project exceeded my expectations. I encourage you to check out the award-winning website at bicyclecoalition.org to see a sample of their work!
Key Medium did an excellent job on a long (6+ months) and complex (complete restructuring and developing a new concept for the website by taking into account stakeholder feedback) website design project for us. They were totally on-board with our programmatic goals for the new website and thought very creatively about how to use good design to meet them, and they went above and beyond to find new ideas, learn about our programming, and put the time in to make the project a complete success.
