Website Construction (CMS-Based)
Impact statement
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to use limited core operations funds we have to provide direct service work and supports to grassroots organizations and communities with limited resources.

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 have just re-named/re-branded from the Community Health Worker Network of Buffalo to a broader/deeper name and brand of CoNECT (Community Network for Engagement, Connection and Transformation). We need a new website to effectively convey who we are/what we do!

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have our former website and basic content with new name/logo, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a collective and collaborative organizational team, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

We are extremely excited about the growth we have achieved since our inception in 2012 and the work we have done to re-name/re-brand. A new website and online platforms to communicate with our diverse base of stakeholders will really up our game and impact!

Project may require a short interview with the organization.
