Impact statement
This project will save us $6,772 , allowing us to continue to put our limited resources and volunteer time into our core programs of beach cleanups, water testing, educational events and policy monitoring and outreach.

Project Details

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
Additional Details

Our Surfrider chapter needs a website overhaul and our hope would be that this project will outline the scope of changes needed to improve the website. The website is in WordPress using a template that National Surfrider requires. Our knowledge of Wordpress is limited and it has been a challenge navigating it as we learn how to use WP. Following this audit, we will post a second project for a website update to help implement the suggested changes outlined in the audit.

What We Have In Place
  • I'm not sure what we can provide or what is needed. We currently have one person minimally managing the website, and learning WordPress. We have never used Catchafire before, so this process is new to us.
How This Will Help

Our website is a core tool to communicate the identity of our organization, outreach to members and the public, and provide information to help the public get involved on relevant issues.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.
