Website Construction (CMS-Based)
Impact statement
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to direct funds we have to provide much-needed resources for the students we serve across Georgia.

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 looking to create a website that attracts a variety of audiences and gives those audiences a better understanding of what we do every day for the children of Georgia

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have an existing website, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have the information we would like to see posted on the website, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

We want to drive supporters to our website, and provide a better understanding of what we do as an organization -- providing academic and non-academic resources for the high-needs students we serve in Georgia. We feel this one of the most effective ways of showing our supporters how much we appreciate them, and of encouraging them to keep giving
