This project will save us $5,767 , allowing us to use these funds to continue enriching our current programs for our students. We are a very small nonprofit org. with limited funds & employees. We don't have a designated employee to work on this.

What We Need

  • Feedback on the current website’s layout, user functionality, visual design, content, and other key features
  • Clear articulation of the Organization’s goals for the website
  • Recommendations for improvements to help achieve the Organization’s desired goals

How This Will Help

The success of our organization depends on making our website more prominent so clients can find us. Without your help, we cannot do this audit. We don't have the personnel to take this on. Your skills will empower us to update our website to highlight our programs & availability.

What We Have In Place

We currently have a basic website through Weebly with a lot of content which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have an Admin Coord who updates the website, a Fb page w/ 227 likes, Twitter page w/82 follower and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Fun Fact

We are a small nonprofit working with a primarily Hispanic community. The majority of our clients are living in a Spanish speaking home. We want to reach more of our community and need a website audit to help us become prominent and accessible.
