WordPress Basics: How to Make Edits to your Nonprofit Website

Does your nonprofit have a website but the thought of making edits or updates gives you anxiety? Wish there was an easier way to learn WordPress without countless video tutorials or courses? Now there is! Join us for a one day WordPress Workshop where you will learn the ins and outs of your WordPress Nonprofit Website. This workshop will give you back the control of your website and teach you how to make your own edits and understand what WordPress is all about.

With limited time, resources and staff on hand to help, managing the website for your nonprofit is usually the last thing on the list at the end of the day. In today’s world, its crucial to not only have a fully functioning website that speaks to your mission and what you do, but one that stays updated and active so that your supporters know how to get involved and continue to support you.

Many nonprofits hire a website designer for the initial build-out of their website, but then have to spend additional resources to make changes and updates to keep the website active. In addition, a lot of the time the web designer is nowhere to be found or takes too long to make changes and it leaves the nonprofit stuck because they have no idea how to make changes themselves.

That changes today! Take back control of your nonprofit website by learning the ins and outs of WordPress. In this one day workshop, nonprofits will learn how to login, make changes to content easily as well as learn about plugins and updates that will make your life easier.

The following is required:

1). Must have a live, wordpress website (provide URL)

2). Laptop

3). Login credentials for website
