It’s the holiday season. Most of us are winding down from the busy year and turning our thoughts to family, community, and how, as human beings, we fit into the big picture. This year, we decided that building free websites for nonprofits would help us fit a little better!
I’m going to get into that. First, I’d like to send out a big thank you to all who have dedicated their lives to the betterment of humanity. It’s a conscious, honorable choice. I have great respect for it.
So, what are we doing for nonprofits this year?
We want to help you in the best way we know how: by building great websites. There are no hidden costs. There are no strings attached. The Deluxious team will dedicate the same level of service and attention to you that we provide to our clients.

Social networks and content sharing are more important than ever. This is especially true for nonprofits.
Your website is the central hub where your online awareness and fundraising efforts connect to your community in the form of donations, volunteers, and increased awareness.
A mediocre website makes it difficult for people to see the true value of your work. It means fewer donations, fewer volunteers, and less awareness for your cause.
To be successful, your website must highlight your unique qualities and clearly illustrate the passion and energy going into your work. Just as important, your website should make it quick and easy for people to volunteer, donate, and connect with you.
Nonprofits face a challenge. Funds are limited. Great websites cost money.
Too often, nonprofits have to ask, “Do we use our funds to fulfill our promise to the community and make the world a better place? Or should we spend money improving the website?”
Unless you’re sitting on a big pile of cash, the first option wins every time. I’m glad it does. It’s what makes you folks awesome. Unfortunately, it’s rare that nonprofits have the available funds to allocate to proper web development.
This is why so many great causes have mediocre websites.
If you ask us to, we’ll make yours great and help you make 2013 your best year ever.
Obviously, our resources are limited so we can’t help everyone. Leave a comment or send us an email right now introducing your organization. What do you do? How are you helping your community? What would you like to accomplish with your website in 2013?
If you’re not a nonprofit, what do you think about us making free websites for nonprofits? What other free resources are out there for nonprofits? What are you doing this holiday season to give back?
