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

The website needs to work with our CRM Bloomerang so we can fully utilize their website integrations. The website must meet accessibility standards.

What We Have In Place
  • Our current website content is fully developed and we love most things about our website design, though are open to changes in its appearance. The issue with our current website is that it is controlled by our website company and we are unable to make ongoing changes without going through them first. In addition, our website is not fully accessible or functioning with our CRM Bloomerang due to its current template. The fix for that is at least a month out.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to put more of our resources to our free COVID-19 workshop programming and student individualized services.

We are constantly updating our programs and providing more services to the community, especially amidst COVID-19. Being able to access our website would allow us to efficiently update everyone about our programs, making them available sooner!
