Kickoff: Determine your goals  

Before starting to build a website, it's important to determine what goals the website should serve. What is the purpose of the website? What do you want visitors to do on the site? Some common goals for nonprofit websites include:  

  • Raising awareness about the organization's mission and programs  
  • Soliciting donations and fundraising  
  • Recruiting volunteers and members  
  • Providing information about events and news  
  • Offering resources and educational materials  

Branding: Build Trust with Donors

Branding a nonprofit website is important to help build trust with donors, volunteers, and other stakeholders, and it can also make it easier to communicate the organization's mission and values effectively. We know this step is important and will make sure that the template you choose to work with is branded effectively and communicates your mission, values, and impact on every page.  

Content and Nonprofit Web Development 

A sitemap is a map of the pages on your website. Creating a sitemap can help you plan out the structure of your site and ensure that visitors can find the information they need easily. Some pages to consider including on your nonprofit website might include:  

  • Home page: A brief introduction to the organization and its mission  
  • About us: More detailed information about the organization's history, leadership, and goals  
  • Programs: Information about the organization's programs and initiatives  
  • News and events: Updates on recent news and upcoming events  
  • Donate: Information about how visitors can donate to the organization  
  • Volunteer: Information about how visitors can get involved as volunteers  
  • Contact us: Contact information for the organization, including email, phone, and address  

Twin State will help you plan your pages and add content to get you up and running with your new website as quickly as possible.

Multi device website testing is a crucial step in ensuring that a website is accessible and user-friendly across different devices, such as desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. Your new website will load quickly, look great on all screen types, and be easy for your visitors to navigate and engage with.
