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, Drupal, or Weebly . A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
Additional Details

We're looking to redo our organization's website to simplify the navigation and create a clear message to communicate to foundations, prospective students, and other organizations looking to partner with us.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a timeline to complete the project with a draft of all the content and most of the wire frames of the website completed. We were working with another Catchafire volunteer until recently (she was unable to continue working with us). We have a lot of photos, videos, design layouts already planned. We just need someone to help complete this project for us!
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to redirect those funds towards developing new programs.

We need a website that is clear and easy to navigate. We run a lot of programs and we're hoping the website can clearly portray how they all work together.
