I have created many types of websites for different types of clients. Each website requires unique features such as blogs, newsletter signups, discussion boards, social network systems, integration with social media, maps, storefronts, and so on. People ask for prices for websites and it is very difficult to set an exact price based on size of the site, number of so-called pages (CMS sites do not really use pages), or number of features. This price list is only an estimate of my offerings that breaks down basic websites by the amount of effort required to construct. Please be aware that the final price will be described in a proposal to you that delineates each feature by its hourly cost and may be higher or lower than what is listed here.

I offer non-profits a 25 percent discount.

Please also be aware that although Joomla! and WordPress are free Open Source content management systems, the value-added plugins and extensions licenses are not typically free. Thus, always add into your budget approximately $100 to $500 for these enhancements as well as royalty-free images.
