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

We are currently using an outdated version of Drupal and are looking for a new more usable and easily upgradable CMS (Wordpress?) and a fresh new design.

We are under a bit of a time crunch as the new site needs to be available in August to give us support for a major comment period.

Our current website is


What We Have In Place
  • We have an active webhost with Wordpress an Drupal available, and a clear idea of what we are looking for so it will be easy for you to get started. I am also fairly proficient on our current Drupal platform and can do a lot of the work in porting over content to the new platform.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to Prepare for an upcoming federal comment period critical to protecting Oak Flat a sacred ecological and recreational haven on public land.

Without a more efficient an effective website, we are unable to educate the public and engage our supporters to help us achieve our mission of protecting Arizona's communities and the environment from inappropriate mining activities.
