Non-profits and charity organisations have turned to the web to get their message to the public and share the news about the work they do. Of course this means they need websites to display information, share news, ask for workers and volunteers, and request donations.
Your website is the public face of your organisation and it contributes an enormous amount to your brand. The quality of your website should reflect the professionalism that people expect from you. A great website can go a long way towards making all your hard work pay off.
When building websites for carers I focus on the primary needs of non-profits. These include community growth, raising awareness and donations.
Community growth is key to the long term success of any non-profit. If you’re not growing, you’re likely withering. Growth can be achieved via social media, email newsletters, blog posts, and events.
Raising awareness is all about engagement. Your website visitors should be interested in your story and want to learn more. An attractive website design displaying high quality images, as well as the development of a good visitor experience are key.
Easily accepting tax deductible donations, processing member dues, or conducting online transactions that benefit the cause all go a long way toward making the financial burdens of non-profits lighter.
It’s a sad reality that many fantastic non-profits are underfunded, understaffed, and lacking in technical know-how. After all, a heart of gold doesn’t come pre-packaged with vast resources and a degree in computer science. As a result, the quality and effectiveness of many non-profit websites suffers. But they don’t have to.
