Website Construction (CMS-Based)
Impact statement
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to award grants to a variety of organizations that serve health, education, and community spirit needs in Delaware County, PA.

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

This project actually involves deconstructing/hiding content on a previously functional website. The Website now needs to be just a homepage that redirects to another webpage after a set amount of time. (Wordpress.org)

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Desired specifications, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have logos/style guide, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

After a recent merger- we need individuals to find the merged organization's webpage- quickly learn of the merger- then get redirected to the website that is maintained with our joint name.
