Having a website that your constituents like is critical to your nonprofit. Luckily, we know what your constituents want from your website.

Surprisingly, a good nonprofit web design isn’t at the top of the list. Actually, it’s having good content. And by that we mean services that you provide, goals that your nonprofit has, and stories of how you’ve affected people’s lives.

Next comes the quality nonprofit web design. But don’t overthink it. Pictures that are attention grabbing and that can tell a story are a great way to minimize the amount of design work you have to do, while still creating a visual impact on the viewer.

Now that your website has a great design and is full of great content, you need to make sure people know how to get around. Using drop down navigation is a great way let constituents pick a page and then see what categories fall under that page.

What else could you add to your website that really puts it over the edge? An interactive aspect. If you hold any type of events, have a way for people to be able to register as an attendee or a volunteer.

And the final step is actually a lot of steps. You have to keep your website up to date. This makes you more credible to anybody who visits your website, and as an added plus, it increases your search engine visibility.
