Project Details

What We Need
  • Set up of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS) like Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, Drupal, or Weebly
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: We recommend that you do a Website Content Plan project first, so that you have all the content ready for your new CMS-based site. A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily - no coding required!
Additional Details

Our current website is built on Wordpress using a Genesis-child theme. We're happy to stick with Wordpress, but need to rethink some of the content and the design.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have staff who can work proactively with you, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a lot of unique and relevant video and photo content, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to buy a paramedic 12 months of medical supplies that they will use to save lives.

We are in the process of renewing our back- and front-end tech stack in order to modernise our charity with a view to creating a more compelling value proposition for donors as well as a lower cost-base that will maximise the impact of donated funds.
