The Abell Foundation has launched a new website with the help of Baltimore based web and software development firm, The Canton Group. The Canton Group was selected by The Abell Foundation to develop a site that would convey the Foundation's mission as a progressive organization working to make a difference in quality of life in Baltimore City and Maryland. The Canton Group was successful delivering on this vision and launched a site with an engaging new design, coupled with the user friendly Drupal Content Management System. The new site serves as the new hub of the Foundation’s digital communications as well as allowing for online grant applications and linkage to the Foundation’s in-house Gifts database.
