Day in and day out, through much hard work and perseverance, nonprofit organizations do their part in spreading good around the world. These groups promote causes that they truly believe in, often with limited budgets and resources. But even on a budget, a nonprofit website should look just as good as the work it promotes. A strong online presence can help in spreading awareness to the organization’s cause and activities, bringing in donations, and recruiting new volunteers. The main points to keep in mind when creating a website for your nonprofit are:
01. Tell your story: Get site visitors excited about your cause and work by showcasing your main activities and highlighting their positive impact.
02. Encourage donations and support: Your site visitors should be able to quickly and easily contribute to the cause with prominent CTA buttons and clear prompts. 03. Build a community: Reach either the community you support or like-minded volunteers (or both), and help them stay up-to-date with your work via social media links, a newsletter subscription, and more.
Below we’ve hand-picked 20 of the best nonprofit websites out there, created with Wix, for your inspiration. Read on to discover what it is that makes them work so well (and look this good). As a bonus, we’ve added a few free nonprofit website templates to get you started:
01. HERoines Inc.
HERoines Inc. is a women’s empowerment platform that motivates and supports women in achieving their dreams. The bright website color scheme of pinks and purples is far from frivolous, conveying the positive and strong-knit vibes of a sisterhood you just want to be part of.
This striking website maintains visitors’ attention with all sorts of high-quality media features, from photographs to icons, animations and more. It also includes a page dedicated to upcoming events, where guests can easily register and RSVP using Wix Bookings. There are testimonials of satisfied members of the community, and a blog for sharing anything from empowering lifestyle tips, to interviews with HERoines members.
The website is scattered with call to action (CTA) buttons that invite visitors to either ‘Donate’ or ‘Become a Member.’ And just in case you happen to miss any of those, there’s a supplementary ‘Donate’ button on the right. This button stays put throughout all of the site’s different pages, with a heart icon that adds a fun and subtle appeal to visitors’ emotions. Down at the footer of the website are a newsletter subscription form and social media links so that visitors can stay in touch.
This website was designed as part of the Wix Design Playground by Valerie Trisnad and Qiuyu Guo.
