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 just went through an incredible rebranding through Catchafire. The company we worked with gave us a new logo and visual guidelines. We'd love to update our website to reflect this change, as well as to reflect a shift in mission.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a Wordpress site, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a passionate Communications Manager leading the project, 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 our general operating expenses and increase staff salaries enough to create a full time position.

Our website is how most people learn more about us. Right now it doesn't reflect the company that we've grown into. We started 20 years ago, and though we have always been focused on bringing people together and inspiring challenging conversations- our work has moved from a focus on science to a renewed social justice centered mission.
