Website Construction (CMS-Based)
Impact statement
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to invest more in youth entrepreneurship initiatives and community building in Puerto Rico.

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

Our website is in dire need of an upgrade, and we also need to transition to a model in which we are able to make future updates ourselves without requesting the help of someone who can code.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a detailed outline of the desired section names and content, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have approved logos, photos, and brand guidelines in Dropbox, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

Friends of Puerto Rico is currently transitioning from a start-up intermediary grant-making organization to a direct service and programming provider in Puerto Rico, and our website needs to reflect our shifting priorities and increased opportunities for engagement.

Project Plan

Prep: Share Information

  • Volunteer Manager provides Professional with links to any existing online presence that the Organization has (e.g., social media, blog, existing website, etc.)
  • Volunteer Manager registers Organization's domain name with a web host, if necessary

  • Volunteer Manager and Professional connect to discuss the timeline and scope of the website project, including: the number of pages or sections for the new website, specific features and plugins requires, look and feel for the website (themes), target date for initial review, target date for website launch
  • Professional reviews information provided and makes recommendations for which CMS application to use
  • Volunteer Manager signs up for the selected CMS application, and provides Professional with credentials to create the website
Milestone 2: Build and Review
