Why your organization needs a nonprofit website
There are many platforms that let you create a nonprofit website. Many of these platforms also let you purchase your domain and so upgrade your URL from .their website to .com with little hassle. There are also many website designers who can help you create the most effective website for your organization.
The importance of a nonprofit website
Websites allow individuals to learn more about your organization. The more information people are able to find about you, the more likely they are to volunteer their time or donate. Your website, then, is a great way to share your success stories and upcoming projects.
Churches can more easily get away without one –simply being a church gives you some additional credibility–but people still may want to check your statement of faith or see if they know the pastor.
Website designers can help you create an appealing nonprofit website
Which means they help you avoid common things that make people close a website, including:
Noisy backgrounds, which include bright colors and too many images.
A small font, or one that is a color that is hard to read because it blends into the background.
Repeating background images, which can make it difficult to read your text or find where anything is.
No information. When visiting websites, readers should be able to discern a name, mission, contact, program information, and about page with little hassle. If you do not tell them why you are important and what you do, they probably won’t donate. Or, you have this information but it’s buried beneath poor coding—which can make some computers lag or cause phones to close the browser—and distracting images. A well designed website is critical to ensuring your organization puts it best foot forward in outreach.
