Impact statement
This project will save us $6,073 , allowing us to invest in providing direct services to people with mental health and substance use issues, including youth, and the homeless.

Project Details

What We Need
  • Tightly-written web copy of up to to eight pages of 200-300 words each
  • The opportunity to work closely with an experienced, SEO literate copywriter
Additional Details

We are almost ready to launch our new website (under construction) but we need to update and edit the existing copy. Most of it is based on our existing website but we recently went through a rebrand (hence the new website) and have new key messages and fresh language. We will also be creating new brochures (see other posted project) and our goal is to be able to use the website copy as a basis for those as well to have a cohesive brand voice.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have copy from our old website that needs to be edited, as well as new key message language. We have the outline for the pages of our new website in a google slides format. Our new website will be done in word press and the design is almost finish but primarily needs the updated copy now. We have a development director and communications manager who will review everything and edit as needed.
How This Will Help

We recently went through a rebranding and have a new logo, tagline and key messages. Our website is our public face and it was built 15 years ago so we need something contemporary to reflect who we are to our clients, donors and community. The goal is for people to easily learn about how to access our services and illustrate the value we provide serving people with mental health and substance use issues.

Project Plan

Prep: Review of Current Materials
  • Volunteer Manager and Professional meet to review Organization's website or website plan, discuss goals, and align expectations

  • Professional drafts SEO-optimized website copy and sends to Volunteer Manager for review
  • Professional and Volunteer Manager review copy (up to two rounds of review and revision)
Milestone 2: Final Draft
