Our 2021 HackingKindness recipient: Friends of San Damiano

It's pretty simple. It's an opportunity for us to do something nice for an organization doing good.

In 2021, our HackingKindness recipient was Friends of San Damiano, and we were thrilled to help this community organization out with a website to help support their one-of-a-kind project.

About Friends of San Damiano

Friends of San Damiano (FoSD) is a non-profit organization that’s formed a public/private partnership with the City of Monona, Wisconsin. Their shared mission is to advance a community-driven transformation of the property known as “San Damiano,” turning it into a one-of-a-kind Lake Monona destination built on environmental, historical, cultural, and recreational value.

The project

The Friends needed their website to be a digital ambassador for this initiative, helping them tell the story of this important, complex effort. They needed it to be a source of timely information and updates for the general public and potential supporters, educating them about the property, the project, and the FoSD team and mission. People needed to be able to easily donate to support the work, read articles in the news media about the project progress, and know how to contact FoSD.

How we helped

  • New Webflow website
  • Information architecture and content population
  • Logo and visual identity

Working with Acumium was really a delightful process. They designed a logo and developed a website that we are so proud of and are happy to have represent us. Throughout the project, they were organized, patient, and thorough, making the process easy and enjoyable. We were lucky to work with them.
