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 for an expert to rebuild a Squarespace website. Our existing site was built years ago before our programs expanded. We need a site that shows the public, potential donors, and audience members the depth, beautify, and importance of our work. We completed a website audit (amazing Catchafire volunteer) and visual branding (another amazing Catchafire volunteer.) We need an expert to redesign a stunning site for us that shows the world loud and clear who we are and what we do.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a branding guide, logo, beautiful photos, video, and copy, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a current website, social media, lots of enthusiasm, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to divert all of our resources into community arts & wellness programs for children, adults, and seniors that often have barriers to access.

We are doing beautiful impactful work in the community, but our visual branding often prevents folks from understanding the depth of what we are doing. A more comprehensive website will open the doors for new donors, bigger audiences, and the ability to impact more under-resourced children, adults, and seniors with uplifting, self-empowering and joyful arts and wellness programs.
