Nonprofit web design tips and more from CEDC

One of the questions we are frequently asked is “How much does it cost for a website?” Our usual answer is “It depends.” (It’s kind of like asking “How much is a new car?” It depends on a lot of factors, such as which options you want to include, whether it’s a hybrid and so on). Your best bet is to put together a strong RFP (Request for Proposal) that you can send around to give an accurate idea of the scope of the new site and get an accurate estimate of what it will cost to build it.
The main goal of an RFP is to accurately portray your needs and your dreams for the new site. If you are sending the RFP to multiple organizations or designers, you will want to make sure that they are all making estimates for the same project so that you can compare apples to apples. You don’t need to worry about the technicalities of how the site will do the things you want it to do – in responding to the RFP, we will make a recommendation as to how we will meet your needs.
