Website Construction (CMS-Based)
Impact statement
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to move six clients and their families into new long-term housing.

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

We are really just looking to bring our website into 2019 and make it easier to navigate, especially for our two major demographics: potential new clients (those in need of social services) and potential new donors (those with a passion for social services and/or advancing the state of HIV prevention, care, and treatment).

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a WordPress site and a branding guide, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a recent heuristic analysis, design sketches/mock-ups, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

It's 2019 and our organization's online presence is paramount to our success in reaching new potential clients and securing a larger donor base than we currently have. Our website is not nearly as attractive or easy to use as many of our peers' and we need to rectify this in order to make it easier for potential new clients to find the information they need about our services and to attract new donors and volunteers into supporting our mission.
