Website Construction (CMS-Based)

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

Greetings! We are looking to rebuild our website that has been hacked for quite some time. We have a domain and a WordPress site; however, our WP is currently hacked. We are hoping to regain access to our WP site and rebuilding our website with a new hosting company. However, if necessary we are wiling to get access to our WP site prior to project kick-off.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a zip file of our old site that had been hacked, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have staff support, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to support our hard working staff in continue to put on programs and support projects that support community empowerment and collective decision making for community transformation.

Our organization receives much of our donations from our website and unfortunately our website has been hacked for about 2 months due to insufficient content management. Online presence is critical for non-profits as we apply for grants and are under review from foundations; therefore we are hoping to rebuild our site as soon as possible!
