Nonprofit Website Design

Too many nonprofit websites fail to bring in enough donors. We design effective websites that expand your donor base so you can help more people.

Engage People Quickly

An engaging nonprofit website should answer the following questions on their homepage in 3-5 seconds above the fold.

Does your organization's website do that?

What problem do you solve?

What is your solution to the problem?

What does success look like after you help people?

Engage People Quickly

Think of these as the 3 Nonprofit Keys that will engage your site visitors, because now they can decide whether to keep scrolling or reading other web pages. The "3 keys" are much easier to understand than displaying your formal mission statement, which can often be too involved and jargony.

More engagement on your nonprofit website increases the likelihood of more donations and volunteers who can deliver your message to more people in need. The rest of the website should lead your site visitors along a clear path to action, whether making a donation, becoming sponsors, or signing up for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions

Designing a website for a nonprofit can cost anywhere from $10,000 to $30,000. Many factors go into the cost, such as the size and complexity of the website, the number of pages, and whether or not you need a custom design. Generally speaking, the more features and functionality you want on your website, the more it will cost to design.

Our process may be a little bit different to what you are used to if you have built a nonprofit website with another agency before. Our first step, and prior to building or designing anything, is developing a comprehensive strategy through a series of personal coaching sessions - this is one of our key differences and is so critical to the journey ahead. The strategy drives the whole plan, but following this, we go through a design process, then building , and then a smooth launch.

We put a lot of time and effort into building your dream nonprofit website. After launch, it's critical to ensure it is well-maintained to keep it running effectively and drive those donations well into the future.

All websites created by us come with a 30-day warranty for starters - this gives you peace of mind to know that your website is in safe hands post-launch and that any little thing that comes up can be addressed at this time.

Following this, we recommend a website care plan to ensure someone is monitoring and maintaining anything and everything that can go wrong; avoiding the surprises that come with a poorly-maintained website.

At the end of the day, we are here to create your vision and dream website to go with this - so, no, there are no restrictions on what kind of website you can have designed. We work with nonprofits, charities and purpose-driven websites, and know that you couldn't possibly want any illegal content on your website, so really we can do anything you're looking for.

Absolutely. In fact, we recommend it! There are a number of grants available to help nonprofits with their website design and development costs. These can be used to invest in building your online presence, helping to set you and your nonprofit up for long-term success.
Furthermore, this frees up cash flow for other essential parts of the business.
