Website Construction (CMS-Based)
Impact statement
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to buy more diapers for babies in need!

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

The Central Jersey Diaper Bank has been working with a volunteer board member to redesign our website, but we are shifting responsibilities and need a professional's touch. Content has been developed, images have been selected, and basics have been established. We need someone to finish the project. We currently use Joomla but are open to feedback.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have copy and images, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have new infographics and access to images, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

Our organization is undergoing rapid growth and transition. The demand for our services grows, and we are becoming a larger player in the human services space in our county. This website will be our calling card for clients, volunteers, donors, and more.
