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 already have a Wordpress website through a Catchafire volunteer. We're pleased with it and aren't looking to change it at this time. Now we need a few pages added that will be very different than the template we are currently using. I have no skills to do that. This will probably be a rather small project.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a visual idea (someone else's website) of what we want, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a staff member, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to provide veterinary care for more cats!

We are looking to have supporters become more engaged in our feral cat advocacy program. We are looking for help financing projects of Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) for feral cats. Our funding generally runs out before the end of the year and we will be looking at this as a way to continue financing veterinary services for these cats.

Project Plan

Prep: Share Information

  • Professional reviews information provided and makes recommendations for which CMS application to use
  • Volunteer Manager signs up for the selected CMS application, and provides Professional with credentials to create the website
