How the Disability Funders Network Web Site Is Organized


The Disability Funders Network (DFN) Web site is divided into four levels:

  • Home page
  • Level 1 pages
  • Level 2 pages
  • Level 3 pages


Home Page

The DFN home page contains navigational text links to Level 1 pages in two places: The image map version is centered beneath the logo, and text links are located at the bottom of the page. All images are accompanied by Alt-text descriptions.

At the very top of the page are two links: one to this page (structural description and access instructions) and one to a page that provides instructions for checking the version of your present graphical browser and links for browser upgrades. Beneath these links is the DFN logo, a white bridge against a turquoise background, and next to this the head and subhead, “Disability Funders Network: A Bridge Between the Disability Community and Organized Philanthropy.” Centered below is an image map with links to Level 1 pages.

Narrative follows, and text links to Level 1 pages follow all main page content.

Beneath the text links is the Bobby Web accessibility validation symbol, and below this are copyright and update statements, along with contact information.

Level 1 Pages

Each Level 1 page has a navigation bar with image-map links to Level 1 pages. All hotspots, navigation buttons and graphical images include Alt-text descriptions.

Level 2 Pages

All Level 2 pages, which mostly link from Research and Publications on the Resources page, include image-map links (at the top) and text-links to Level 1 pages.

Level 3 Pages

These are generally used for special, time-sensitive documents such as current Disability Funders Network activities and invitations.
