Website Construction (CMS-Based)
Impact statement
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to bring world-class entertainment to the pasturelands of Hawaii Island. Located in the beautiful town of Waimea, Kahilu's mission is to make a place where community, creativity, & inspiration thrive.

Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: This project is for a website built with a Content Management System (CMS), such as Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, or Drupal. A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
Additional Details

Looking for a platform that is easily modifiable by non-technical staff. We will need to integrate our ticketing system with the new site as well.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a website and wish list of items, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a dedicated staff member with some tech knowledge, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

A website is critical for any non-profit. For Kahilu Theatre, our website is essential to keep our community and visitors up to date on weekly entertainment. Whether it be concerts, comedians or camps our online presence is vital in keeping the theatre alive! Our website is the first place patrons go to find show lineups and pay for their tickets. We're excited to work with someone who can help create a user-friendly and energetic site both for our patrons and our employees.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.
