Finding the money to accomplish our mission, Getting the word out about us and what we do, Building public trust—in us and/or in the sector as a whole.
Most public companies have some sort of a website that is used to spread the word of what kinds of services and material they offer to the public. This helps inform curious individuals as to what they can expect from the company. However, many non-profit organizations do not have a website. This is a very big mistake that can cost the organization money and the chance to help additional people. People that the organization was established to help in the first place. The website gives others on the outside a window into the organization and shows them exactly what they can expect.
Why Your Organization Needs a Website
If you don’t have one, you’re leaving money on the table. Many funders and donors tell us that they look for more information about applying agencies and soliciting nonprofits by Googling them first. If you don’t have a website – or if you have a poorly optimized one – you may be out of luck.
Exposure for the Organization
This is one of the two main reasons why a non-profilt organization needs to have a website. Which is simply for exposure. Most individuals now receive a majority of their information from the Internet and not anywhere else. A strong Internet foothold allows people to see what kind of content, services and other information they desire about the non-profit organization.
Encouraged Support from the Community
Another reason behind why a non-profit organization needs a website is that the website allows for donations. These donations can be made electronically through the website through a payment receiving company such as Paypal. The money can then go towards the goods and services the non-profit organization offers.
