Chijo goes the extra mile to help non-profits maximize their effectiveness by helping you understand the ‘why,’ and the ‘how’ of a user-focused build. We are so thankful for his expertise. He's such a pro at what he does.

Working with Chijo has been supremely helpful. He gave concrete, specific, and actionable feedback that I didn't even realize I needed on my site. My recommendation to non-profits is this: sign up for that 30-minute exploration call and let him walk you through your website from his perspective. His framework for having a strong site with consistent and powerful messaging is exactly what you need for increasing foot traffic that leads to increased donations.

My experience with Dogpaw Studio has been nothing short of spectacular. Chijo is so easy to work with, knowledgeable, and has the deeper understanding and strategy I was looking for in a web developer to rebuild my nonprofits website. Website builds and revamps can feel overwhelming. Chijo has made the process easy, attainable, and pleasant. 10/10 recommend working with Dogpaw for all your website, content, and branding needs!

Chijo makes the process of updating our messaging and website layout seem so easy and doable. He takes us through the process step-by-step, answering our questions, and sharing examples from other organizations he's worked with. This is a great company to work with!

I can’t say enough good things about Chijo and Dogpaw Studio and I just met him today. Our 15 minute information call turned into a much longer conversation where Chijo explained Dogpaw’s strategy, why it made sense for our nonprofit specifically, and put up with my constant interruptions (out of excitement because everything he was saying sounded so perfect for us) gracefully and with good humor. Not only that, Chijo also provided several valuable tips on how to fix two major issues on our site despite the fact that we have not committed to working with Dogpaw yet. I look forward to a (hopefully) long and productive partnership—I feel like I can learn so much from Dogpaw, which makes this an investment both in myself and the company I work for: double the value!

Chijo is a visionary in the marketing field. While we are hearing that images and videos are going to be "everything" in marketing, he's helping his clients reimagine the use of the written word. By creating storylines on the web about our business/organizations, he is guiding us and our clients to rediscover our relationships and redefine our missions. You won't regret jumping on board with Dogpaw Studios to explore your new story!

Frequently Asked Questions

Designing a website for nonprofits usually costs $12,000 to $20,000.

Many factors go into the cost, such as the size and complexity of the website. 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.
