A rebuild for one of our long term clients, AVCAT.

The Australian Veterans’ Children Assistance Trust is a national independent charity helping the children and grandchildren of ex-service men and women to a better future through tertiary education. Through the generous support of the Australian Government Department of Veterans’ Affairs, ex-service organisations, corporate sponsors and private donors, we provide scholarships which assist recipients to obtain the tertiary qualification they need for their chosen career.

The AVCAT site was built using the Magic Box framework on top of WordPress.

An easy to use page builder with numerous features that are all mobile responsive.

This site sports a stylish count down timer for their next intake of prospects for scholarships.

An easy to update blog and CTA (Call To Action) blocks that can be easily moved, saved and changed globally.

AVCAT wouldn't be possible without the dedicated staff, Board and Donors providing amazing support. The Donors advertising area is powered by a built in advertising portal that tracks impressions and clickthroughs of the logos as well as PDF reports if required.
