Want a Capaciteria of Your Own?
Capaciteria is a peer-reviewed capacity resources for nonprofits. However, the underlying technology behind Capaciteria can be repurposed to create any index, administrative or programmatic.

If you wanted to create an index of child protective services, voter registration sites, domestic violence resources, etc. with the same news, message boards and peer review systems available you could do so with an implementation of your own. Also possible but not implemented in Capaciteria is a complete e-commerce module providing a store front and a fully integrated capability to allow for paid links.

If you are interested in your own implementation of a Capacietria-like index Contact Us. The project would take approximately three to four months to complete with design, installation, user interface, full administrative console, integrated taxonomy, training and vendor supplied documentation all included.

You supply the server, domain name, taxonomy map, and content. Please note the system allows for adding modifying and deleting of the taxonomy. Once installed you have complete control of the system through the administrative console. Customization of the system is possible but prices and implementation time will vary.
