Foundation Fighting Blindness

Project Description

Since its founding in 1971, the Foundation Fighting Blindness has been dedicated to funding innovative research to find preventions, treatments, and cures for inherited retinal degenerative diseases that lead to blindness and affect more than 10 million people in the United States. In order to better serve their constituents, Foundation Fighting Blindness allowed Charity Dynamics to aid in redesigning a new responsive, user-experience focused website on the Drupal platform, that also strictly adheres to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) accessibility guidelines.
