Impact statement
This project will save us $4,762 , allowing us to donate those funds to the organizations that the participants and the sponsors really want to support

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

One of our non-profit projects is an annual memorial day race that will occur in May. The website needs significant updating. Would like it to resemble less of a typical 'race' website, and more of a website that reflects the meaning behind the race and the founders who organize it.The race is organized by four military widows who volunteer their time each year to use the race as a fundraising vehicle to raise money for organizations that support families of military fallen service members.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have content, photos, and a running website, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have concepts and additional thoughts about future direction, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

The website is the public interface for the race. While social media is the main platform for communication, most individuals and sponsors who are not aware of the race or first timers will look at the website. We want to make sure the website reflects the meaning behind the race, and isn't solely functional in nature.

Project Plan

Prep: Share Scope of Changes
  • Volunteer Manager shares link to existing website with Professional
  • Volunteer Manager provides the list of required updates (including content or image assets, if applicable), or a list of issues to resolve
Milestone 1: Kick-Off Meeting
  • Volunteer Manager and Professional connect to discuss the requested updates and/or fixes, and agree on a project timeline
  • Volunteer Manager provides Professional with credentials to access the website admin portal
Milestone 2: Review Updates
  • Professional makes the requested updates and/or fixes to the website (if available, the changes should be made in a test or development environment first)
  • Volunteer Manager reviews each update or fix, and reports any remaining issues to the Professional (e.g., typos in new copy, bugs that were not fixed, new bugs that were created by the updates, etc.)
Milestone 3: Implementation of Updates
  • Professional implements updates and/or fixes to the live website
  • Professional troubleshoots any issues that may arise immediately after implementing changes on the live site
Milestone 4: Training
  • If requested, the Professional provides training to the Volunteer Manager on how to update site content and resolve minor issues going forward
