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We have a thorough website but it is on a very outdated, unsupported platform. I would like to take most of the content and migrate it to create a fresh, easy-to-update website. We are very small non-profit (1 FT, 2 PT employees) with a small budget.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a solid website, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have an active domain name and web host, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to develop virtual programming and volunteer training. Due to COVID-19, we project that income sources will decrease by 30% this year; at the same time we must modify services for virtual delivery.

We provide literacy instruction to adults who struggle to read, write & communicate in English. Services are provided by a network of trained volunteers. We do not receive government funding: funding comes from active fundraising and grant writing. The website is critical to our ability to communicate services to students, recruit and support volunteers, enroll volunteers and students, and to educate and attract funders.
