Custom charity web design
Charities have an important message to share, and in many cases this message is unique as you aim to achieve a benefit to society that no other organisation is able to offer.
Investing in a bespoke charity web design allows you to maximise the benefits you get for your investment, allowing you to justify any spending made from the donations you receive.
At visionsharp we always work hard to provide you with the best possible return on your investment.
Your new charity website will become the hardest working, most effective member of the team. As the digital hub for all of your online and offline activities we’ll integrate blogs, newsletters, social media posts and video with an easy to use admin panel allowing you to update your site in the future and keep it looking fresh.
Many of the charity websites we build use familiar and intuitive content management systems like WordPress and Concrete5, which you can have maintained by a digital marketing agency or update yourself using the simple back-end dashboards.
In addition, we can equip your website with integrated features like the ability to donate online, recruit volunteers or sell products. Digitising these tasks can help your organisation grow by reaching a wider audience cost effectively, 24/7.
Multi-faceted functionality for charity websites
Good charity web design should be more than just a holding page with the address of your offices, shop, or contact details for donations.
The charity websites designed and developed by visionsharp go far beyond a static web page, bringing together all of the different ways for people to contact you, donate or otherwise engage with your organisation.
Some examples of how this can be achieved with a custom charity website design include:
- Integration of online donations and mobile/SMS donation.
- Opportunities to volunteer to support your charity in person.
- Ecommerce software to allow you to sell donated items directly online.
Research by the National Philanthropic Trust UK found online donations increased by 17% between 2017 and 2018 alone and a record high of 8.4% of all fundraising revenue was raised via the web in 2018.
This potential will only continue to grow in the years to come – invest in a bespoke charity website now and you can stay ahead of that curve, but it’s important to recognise that in the near future a fully functional fundraising website is likely to become absolutely essential for all charities that want to thrive.
