The mission of the National Park Foundation (NPF) is to strengthen the connection between the American people and their National Parks by raising private funds, making strategic grants, creating innovative partnerships and increasing public awareness.
NPF came to Matrix Group to create a Web strategy and solution to promote the preservation of national parks and to call on the American public to take personal action by making donations. Features of the site include an interactive timeline of park philanthropy over the last 100 years; content distribution across NPF and other National Parks and Associations sites; viral marketing campaigns that allowed users to share pages of the site with friends and link to popular social networking and bookmarking sites; analytics and tracking that identified the pages being shared, pages visited and page they exited the site from.
