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!)
Additional Details

We are moving our website from Weebly to WordPress and would like help completely switching over, creating, and modernizing our website.
We want to create a more stable system to navigate and update our programs, events, donations, etc.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have all existing content on our Weebly platform, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a staff member who will be available to help at any time, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to continue providing research, programs, and events for the Latino community in our area. We are the only Latino-based research nonprofit organization in the Midwest.

This project is important because our website is the main information hub for people to register for our free community events and programs, learn research regarding the Latin American/Hispanic community, find resources in the Twin Cities metro, and contact us regarding any questions/concerns.
