Project Details

What We Need
  • Updates and/or fixes to the Organization’s existing website (e.g., update copy or images, fix bugs, integrate plugins or widgets, customize styles/themes, etc.)
  • Training for the Organization's staff on how to update website content and resolve minor issues (if applicable)
Additional Details

NECAT recently had a new website designed. We launched it with a free trial of the developer's donation processor. We no longer want to keep using it, but need a new donation page designed and new donation processing plugin installed. We imagine the page remaining fairly simple (similar to how it looks now - with a nice clean donation form. There might be other small change requests to the site, but this is our main goal. Please let us know if you have any questions!

What We Have In Place
  • Again, the page can look similar to how it does now with a banner and simple donation form, but we are also happy to take your suggestions for an improved look. Obviously, the donation page is very important to helping us achieve our mission and we want to make the user experience as seamless as possible.The two staff members available to provide support to you successfully supported the company who recently built our site. We are very quick at responding and will make this easy for you.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,762 , allowing us to provide life-changing services to those who need it most. Our program allows those facing enormous challenges to enter the job market on a career path and permanently end the cycle of poverty.

NECAT is a young organization with a critical mission. Growing individual giving is a key strategic objective in the year ahead. Having the technology to support this is vital to our success. Additionally, having a professional website presence improves our credibility and overall growth potential.

Tyler was a fantastic volunteer. He was very responsive and knowledgeable. He was also upfront and honest about not being entirely sure he knew how to fix an issue on our website. But, he was willing to look into it and he figured it out! I would love to work with Tyler again.
