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!)
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a Squarespace account with content and existing pages, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a dedicated staff member that understands Squarespace basics, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to direct these critical funds towards improving our services and event programming for the San Francisco Bay Area community and towards our organization's general operating costs.

Our organization's website is the main outward-facing portal that helps us convey and share information with our community. This project is important because we are having trouble configuring the website in a user-friendly way that allows users to easily access the information we share. We are looking forward to having a CMS expert to help us with customizing our Squarespace to help our team better optimize the way we build webpages and share information.
