Today it’s easier than ever for a charity to set up a beautiful websites and accept donations. People who manage nonprofit organizations clearly understand how hard it can be to make ends meet + with the current state of economy fewer people are donating. Hiring a professional web-designer or web design firm will end up costing you anywhere from $2,000 to $5,000 for a website. The good news is, with WordPress, you can now create and manage your website without spending thousands of dollars for a web developer.
Today we collected some high quality non-profit WordPress themes from Themeforest. These professionally done themes will help start the online project for your charity organization, find like-minded people and involve them into the charity activity. Remember: Having a beautiful design for your charity will scream professionalism and that you care about your charity’s brand image. Don’t scare potential donors away with an ugly design.
Also just a quick tip.
I recently watched a TED talk called “Photos that bear witness to modern slavery” by Lisa Kristine. After hearing the devastating circumstances that people face in modern day slavery, I wanted to donate. I went to the website and tried to donate via PayPal. Surprisingly they had donation set up through PayPal (most charities don’t, which is just lazy). After trying 6 times and reloading the page, the payment did not go through. I decided to reach them via Twitter, but still no reply.
If you’re starting a serious charity, please make sure to look professional in every aspect (social media, web design, payment process, newsletters, receipts and etc). Your offline and online reputation is very important, so don’t slack. Anyhow, thank you for reading my little rant. Enjoy the themes!
