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

Need the website to be built in Squarespace for ease of update by our staff and volunteers

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have an existing Wordpress website, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a staff member who would work closely with this project, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to run more workshops and fund our programs more.

Having a redesigned website that more clearly showcases our programs and services as well as have some resources available for download will allow us to better serve our target community of low-income Filipino families. Also making it easy to donate and volunteer or apply for internships will better allow us to grow and sustain support for our work.
