We specialize in building non profit websites which need to offer more than your typical business site. A non profit’s website needs to make it easy to find out more about the organization's mission, how to donate money, and how to become more involved.
The website needs to make contacting your organization simple for all those who wish to connect on a deeper level. And it needs to do all this in a way that’s inviting to the organization’s targeted donors and volunteers.
The most important information visitors need to know, is your organizations purpose.
Visitors need to know why you exist. It is best to have a concise and clear statement on your home page that also links users to a page dedicated solely to your mission.
Your cause is moving, and your mission is exciting. But now, what can your supporters do to help? Make sure you make it clear for your visitors both what they can do, and how to do it. Providing multiple means of contact makes it easier for volunteers to get in touch, so include an email address, phone number, and a web contact form if you can.
One key to creating a great non profit website is making your site donor friendly.
Non profit organizations cannot succeed without the generosity and support of others. And in today’s internet era, a huge chunk of donations are going to be made online. So your website can be a great place to solicit donations, especially from new donors. It can also make it easier for recurring donors to make additional donations. In either case, you want it to be a simple and straight-forward process for people to give you money. And be sure not to limit the ways your supporters can donate. Provide the option for both one-time and monthly donations, as well as clear instructions for those who want to donate by mail.
