Website Construction (CMS-Based)
Impact statement
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to provide more opportunities for getting our kids prepared for college and on the road to a solid career.

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

Looking for a wordpress developer/designer (or at least some experience) to help us redesign the North Light website

Here are two examples that we are interested in modeling after from a look/feel experience perspective. I know we are most likely limited with theme selected, but Build On was built on Wordpress minimally. We also realize this what is possible with people's donated time, etc.

More details upon review. Thank you!

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have our own wordpress website and a theme that we want to use., which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have Branding material, site map and various content ready., and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

The website has not been updated and years and has a retrofitted mobile/responsive design applied.

Updating the website would allow more rentals for the nonprofit as well as a cleaner view of all the amazing services that North Light offers its local community.

We also need to capitalize on a cleaner donation process and ease of use with the site map/site flow.
