how to create an effective nonprofit website

Harnessing the power of a strategically built website is one of the best ways to introduce a nonprofit organization to a larger and more relevant audience. It provides an incredible stage to host important information, event details, and donation platforms. However, at Cheeky Monkey Media we understand that running a nonprofit organization often involves wearing many different hats. This can make it difficult to spend time working out what you need for your nonprofit website to be effective. Cheeky Monkey helps nonprofit organizations build amazing sites just like this one. In this article, we’ll be helping you break down the key elements you need to make your nonprofit website effective, whatever your priorities and goals are. 

Implement Full Device Responsiveness 

Did you know that over 50% of web users are on mobile devices? That statistic alone shows why it is so important to make sure your nonprofit website renders great across all device types. To make your nonprofit website effective it needs to display properly across all device types, including mobile, desktops, laptops, and tablets. We’re here to help if you need a little help making your nonprofit website responsive across all devices. Our web developers are experts in building fully responsive nonprofit sites, designed to convert donors and potential members. 

Deliver an Easy-To-Use, Streamlined & Well-Designed User Experience (UX) 

As a nonprofit organization, you need to appeal to a wide-ranging audience that includes donors and prospective volunteers, and members. This is why it is so important to ensure your site is both easy to navigate and that it displays information correctly. Your site only gets one chance at making a first impression and with a great design, you can make sure it is a lasting one. Keep your content clean and straight to the point so you can communicate your nonprofit’s message efficiently. 

Simplify Donation Functionality 

nonprofit organizations rely on donations, along with volunteers, to succeed in their missions. With donations being such an integral part of a nonprofit it makes sense that this should be a focus for your website. No nonprofit wants to miss out on a donation due to a website’s technical issue. Keep your donation feature and functionality simple and easy for potential donors to use. Also, don’t forget to include a number of popular, user-friendly payment functions.
