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 functional, comprehensive website + test Drupal site, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a communications drive full of images, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to put more funds towards serving Central Brooklyn with programs and seminars to help their housing situations.

Our current website is confusing, dated, and poorly organized, to say the least. We need something sleek, professional and well maintained that can speak to both donors and community members in the same breath with ease. Upgrading the website will make it easy for potential donors to learn of our work, encourage sign-ups for events and volunteer opportunities, and promote our services and presence throughout Central Brooklyn.
