How can your website serve your organization?

A website is an investment and not an expense. It works around the clock and can handle hundreds of people at a time. Your website can spread the word to further your organization at all times by recruiting more volunteers, connecting with donors, and helping you to gain more recognition for the work you are already doing. Its fundraising ability can help you to raise more money for your organization and quickly pay for itself!

In a Millenial Donors Report, 71% of respondents get information about nonprofit organizations through web searches! http://casefoundation.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/MillennialImpactReport-2011.pdf.

The 2014 donor report states that a company’s website is the primary media for learning about the company’s cause work! http://cdn.trustedpartner.com/docs/library/AchieveMCON2013/MIR_2014.pd

Your website is an exciting opportunity to create awareness for your organization through educating the public and evoking action from your members, donors, and volunteers.

There are organizations and foundations who recognize the asset of an exceptional website and will grant funding in order to help an outstanding organization further their cause!

Here are some foundations who have approved grants in the past towards forwarding the web and technology goals of Non Profit Organizations. They just may be the key to optimizing the potential of your website online and can help fund the exciting web projects that will further your cause.

  1. Interesting article on NTEN site about being sure you can track results when requesting these grants. http://www.nten.org/articles/2015/guaranteeing-successful-new-technology-adoption

    “Nonprofits and grant writers are increasingly being asked to use outcomes-based, provable data when applying for grants, causing major shifts in funding and accountability. Both funders and individual donors prefer proof of impact because it increases the chances that the programs they pay for will get positive results. This means that, without the correct outcome reports, nonprofits are increasingly finding grantor checkbooks closed.”

    Are you currently tracking more than just dollars donated? Translate your success stories into data-driven graphs and reports that show progress toward your mission and post these on your website for grantors and foundations to see your impact!
