Website Design Not For Profit

Web Design for Non Profits & Social Enterprises

Design for Donors. Not For profits need to show how they steward their resources. Showing how donor dollars are directed to their most useful ends. Show government how you manage their grants. 

The big ask, and the small one too. Prove to your audience you will manage their estate if they will it to you. Make your $20 dollar donor feel like their contribution is making a difference. 

Tell your story. Who needs your help, and why does your organizaton exist? Your website can help tell why your people need help, and what programs and services you offer to do that.

Guide your users. People who need your services need to find them. Have your website direct them to the services and programs they are looking for. Make your services findable on google with well optimized pages. 

Design for mobile. More than 50% of users are looking at websites on their phones and tablets. Be where your audience is, and make sure you are reaching them. 

Organizations both large and small have trusted Kyle Loranger Design with their not-for-profit web design and development. 

Controlling costs for tight budgets. 

We get it. Sometimes there is a very fixed amount of money for a non profit website project. You need to not only get the most value for your dollars, but ensure you don’t get caught on cost overruns. 

We ensure time is well spent, and you get the regular budget updates you need to make sure the project stays on track, and we can make the best choices to reach your goals, 

We do all of our work in house.

At KLD, we write, design and build our sites ourselves. This means we know what we build inside and out and can advise what features are easy (and cheap) and which will require more budget. 

We’re designers first.

We’ve all trained as graphic designers first. This means we build from a perspective of creating effective communication, and solid marketing results.

A manageable site, with with a  friendly WYSIWYG editor. 

Yes we actually mean that. New tools have come along that make editing your WordPress website much more intuitive than it used to be. This means we can give you more value for your design budgets, and you can make more substantial edits if you choose to.

Funnels to keep the navigation clear.

We will organize and build your site so users know exactly where to go, and get to your key action points. You don’t want to let your users wander, lose interest and leave. We want them to find you, confirm they have found the right organization, and reach out to contact you.

Targeting your website to your clients and donors.

What service do you offer and who do you offer it to? Getting to a specific position and committing to it is critical for getting your site found online. One of the most valuable services we offer, is helping our clients focus their pitch to help their site get found.

How do you build non-profit websites?

1) Site planning and structure

We will create a clear funnel in the site to direct users to your key action points. We will also plan the site navigation, and how many pages are actually needed to be built.

2) Site visual design

To help narrow down design options, we will review with you other similar organization sites. With your feedback we will develop concepts for a modern, custom design that reflect the current brand standards for your organization. With revisions, we will finalize a design. Our site design can feature:

  • A responsive design that will adapt for different screen sizes
  • A ‘sticky’ menu, which stays on screen even as the site scrolls up
  • Key section pages will be very visual, with large headlines and images
  • Other features as required

3) Site Development

With an approved design, we will set up a test site on our development server, code the template pages required and walk you through a draft version of the site.

4) Site formatting and features

KLD can format and design all the content pages of the site. We will review pages with the project team, make revisions and get approvals.

5) Site browser testing and launch

The site will be tested in modern browsers (Safari, Internet Explorer, Edge, Chrome, Firefox) and on common tablets (iPad) and phones (iPhone) and any tweaks required to keep the site looking good will be done. We use a service called Browserstack to view the site on different operating systems (Windows, Mac OS, etc) and browsers.

With your approval, the site will be deployed on the live server, and the domain will be re-routed to point to the new server. Once made live, we will install Google Analytics and Search Console Tools, and add you to these accounts for you to review site traffic whenever you like. We will also test and make adjustments to maximize site speed.

Why do you use WordPress as you content management platform? 

After years of trying various content management systems, we settled on WordPress because it gave the most flexibility and best user experience for our clients.

  • More than 25% of the world’s websites are run on WordPress, and that number is rising.
  • There are so many ways to add on new features and capabilities with plug-ins.
  • Sites can be moved to different servers if ever needed.
