Website Construction (CMS-Based)
Impact statement
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to implement more time and energy into programming and offering services to people with a mental illness. This is about the salary of a part-time staff person!

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!)
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a html website we need to convert to WordPress, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a dedicated staff person to work with you directly, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

Our current website is outdated and needs a face lift Websites are an essential part of marketing and lets people, and funders learn more about your organization. It can often be the first impression for external stakeholders.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.
