  • What to expect as a selected 48in48 nonprofit

    United Way will be managing the selection process for 48in48. If selected, nonprofits should expect the following:
    • Complete a branding questionnaire and website content in August.
      • Branding Questionnaire - 1 to 4 hours to complete
      • Website Content (About Us, Services, Our History, Contact Us pages) - 1 to 10 hours to complete
    • A primary contact for the nonprofit will need to be available during the weekend of the 48in48 event to answer questions.
    • The new website for the nonprofit will go live at the end of the 48in48 event.
    • The website being created for the nonprofit is a gift and is not work for hire. Thus, the nonprofit will have input on the project concerning the look and feel, but will not have the degree of input as if it were a commercial website project.
    • After the event is complete, the nonprofits will have two options for where to host their sites:
      • The nonprofit can take their website files and database and move to any hosting company supporting WordPress, thus the nonprofit will be managing the site themselves.
      • The nonprofit can leave their website on the 48in48 platform and pay a monthly fee for hosting and maintenance. There are two hosting plans: a monthly fee is $60/month for Basic Plan and $90/month for Advanced. (details on hosting options will be shared upon selection.)
