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

On our current website we hold a historic archive that showcases the work we have presented for the last 50 years. This archive was build by another party and want this archive to migrate/be kept in our new website.

What We Have In Place
  • I'm not sure what to offer in terms of resources. I think a one-on-one call would be extremely helpful to better understand the resources we might already have on hand.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to stay connected with our community. It will also provide a platform for our Capital Campaign, which will enable us to raise the necessary monies needed to stabilize our organization.

The last two years we have been dealing with the instability after being displaced. When forced to move to another location, the limited funds were invested into the actual site for tenant improvements. As we prepare for the future, we are in need to update our public facing image and communications. We need to have a website platform that is easy to update. By having these resources readily available to us, we can once again engage audiences.
