Why Do Organizations Choose Us to Host Their Nonprofit Websites?
Ease of Use for Your Constituents
You want your constituents, donors, and anyone new to your organization to be able to easily find out what your organization does, why you’re special, why they need to donate their time or money to you, and be able to make an online donation with ease. This can make or break your organization’s online success and is especially true for organizations that work with an older demographic. Don’t forget that many of your website visitors may be on phones and mobile devices – so be sure that your platform is mobile-friendly (responsive) and works well on all devices.
Our nonprofit websites were developed with this idea first. Our templates are all responsive and built on the power of WordPress, so we have your back.
Branding that Defines an Organization
What image are you hoping to portray to your website visitors? Do you want your organization to look hip and modern or serious and scholarly? Your website is your face to the world, so be sure that your branding is decisive and based on your mission.
We make sure that you have enough customization to add your logos, images, color scheme, and branding and make the website design truly yours. Choose from our recommended templates or work with us to find something that speaks more to your nonprofit organization.
Clear Calls to Action
The best nonprofit websites allow your organization to be more successful. Make sure your organization has defined a digital strategy to get there. If you are trying to raise money (always!), be clear and let your constituents know. Include a Donate Now button and a call to action message in the main navigation bar. If your organization runs on volunteers, place it front and center and repeat it often. For newbies to your organization, be sure to include an email or newsletter sign-up. We offer newsletter and SMS sign-ups on all of our nonprofit website templates.
Allow website visitors to get involved with your organization in a minimal way, setting the stage for increased involvement later.
People love to see a beautiful website, and by creating engaging content your supporters are more inclined to donate.
We have skilled designers who know how to brand nonprofit organizations. We work one on one with you to create state-of-art, innovative non-profit websites with clear navigation and calls to action. Our functional nonprofit websites are easy to use on a desktop, tablet or mobile phone. Let’s design your dream nonprofit website and increase your digital presence to impact your donor base.
Increase Credibility for Your Organization
Advertise your Guide Star, Charity Navigator, Better Business Bureau or other certifications, awards and ratings on your website. People love to see badges on nonprofit websites and feel more confident in donating when an organization is certified or has been reviewed and rated by others.
Our nonprofit websites include a footer space for these important logos and certifications.
If your organization is shopping for a nonprofit website, don’t forget about the back-end!
Ease of Payment Integration
Online fundraising is important. You’ll need a payment processor to accept online donations, sell tickets and other items on your nonprofit website. Setting up a merchant account can be a lengthy process.
All of our nonprofit websites can be easily configured to take credit and debit card payments with DoJiggy Payments.
No lengthy applications or wait time; sign up with us and start taking donations the same day.

We Have the Best Integrations for Nonprofits

Recommendations for Building an Effective Nonprofit Website
We have supported nonprofit organizations since 2003 with our proprietary nonprofit fundraising software and services. We now bring our skills and expertise to the power of WordPress and its unique platform to provide organizational websites to nonprofits, schools and communities of faith. If you have a new organization or have been tasked with reworking your outdated nonprofit website, we’re here to help. Your cause is important to us, so we offer inspiration and design ideas for your nonprofit website based on our experience and research:
- Fewer options on the primary menu navigation bar help constituents to focus. Don’t add too many menu items, but rather categorize and add content under about 6-8 main menu items.
- Good photos and graphics are a must. Remember – a picture is worth 1,000 words. Hire a photographer to attend your events or classes and be sure to include photos of those you serve (with permission).
- Put as much information as possible right up front on your nonprofit website home page, so users don’t have to click to learn what you do and for whom.
- Present clear calls to action – what are you looking for from constituents? Donations, volunteers, fundraising and event participants, and more.
- Put your nonprofit mission statement upfront and center so people know who you are and what you’re about.
- If search engines don’t find you, you won’t reach the audience you need and it will be difficult to reach your goals. Be sure to focus on SEO.
- Highlight your organization’s Social Media pages. Encourage your users to join the conversation and learn more about your daily activities by following you on social media.
- Blog often and highlight case studies and personal stories that share the impact of your organization.
