Focus 4 understands the need to give back to the community, and to offer assistance to those in need. We have donated monies and services to global charities, including Make Child Poverty History (providing food and educational materials to underprivileged children in Africa), and the victims of the tragic earthquake that struck Haiti in 2010; as well as local non-profits such as Havre de Grace, Maryland’s Tidewater Players, the Greater Excellence in Education Fund, the Empty Stocking Fund of Harford County.
Our staff has also built or redesigned attractive and functional websites for non-profit organizations in and around Harford County, frequently offering discounted rates, and search engine optimization services at no charge to make sure the website can be found easily.
The Unique Needs of Non-Profit Websites
Non-profit websites are a unique breed, as they must offer the user a reason to donate or volunteer their services, and make it as easy as possible for them to do so. They may or may not include the following features:
- events calendars
- rotating events announcements
- testimonials from members, benefits recipients or supporters
- donation buttons or forms (using built-in e-commerce, or third party sites like Paypal)
- e-commerce for purchasing fund-raising items or registering for events
- volunteer sign-up forms
- discussion forums for volunteers or members
With or without the features listed above, all non-profit websites must serve one or both of these purposes: get the word out to engage community support, and facilitate better communication among the members or volunteers. Our preferred CMS, WordPress, makes it easy for you to build any of the features above into your website, to better server your members and the local community.
