Impact statement
This project will save us $4,762 , allowing us to Run a series of workshops on how technology is impacting the Arctic - a project called Arctic 3.0.

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

We have an amazing website that was designed and created by a Catchafire volunteer in 2016. Three years later, it needs some updating! We are specifically looking to redesign the Publications page, the Projects page, and the Events/News page, andput in some updated links on our home page. Thank you!

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have A content manager and design guideline, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have Two website audits and a user feedback survey, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

a key goal of our nonprofit is to communicate new research, challenges, and solutions about the Arctic to increase understanding and support informed decision making. To do that we need an easily navigate-able, well designed website. Your help will help us reach more audiences in a compelling way.
