Website Construction (CMS-Based)
Impact statement
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to invest back into the Latino Community of Colorado.

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 actually already have our website built out. What we need is someone who can use the code from our website to build out our donation page on a CSS editor. This is what our basic donation page looks like:
and this is our website:

We'd like to use colors and headings.

If possible, we'd also like to learn a few basics of working with the CSS editor to edit event ticket pages.

Thank you for reading all the way through!

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have our website done, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have access to the CSS editor, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

This project will help our donors feel more comfortable in aligning our donation page with our website. They currently look very different. We've also lost some of our recurring donors. Having a customized and familiar donation page is important to us and our donors.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.
