    We help nonprofits build their community by creating websites that take visitors on a journey


    Does your org’s brand come across as it should? We’ll help you articulate who you are and why your mission matters, creating a compelling brand story that resonates with your audience.

    Website Development

    A messy website stands between your organization and the impact you could be making. We can design and build a website that guides your visitors to take action.

    Digital Strategy

    It’s not enough to “just” have a website. Instead, you need a plan for how your website fits into the bigger picture of your nonprofit’s goals and how you interact with your community.

    Your org needs a brand that connects with your community and a website that gets visitors taking action.

    You’re a nonprofit communication professional ready for the next phase of your org. But you know your current online presence won’t get you there.

    Many organizations grow faster than their websites can keep up. That’s a good thing because it means you’re creating more impact…

    …but it’s also a bad thing because it means you’ve hit a ceiling. To do more good, you need a website that reaches more people and represents you well. Your org’s current site isn’t building relationships with your visitors, and you know it.

    Your situation changed, but your website didn’t keep up.

    Do any of the following apply to you?

    • You find yourself working AROUND your website (instead of alongside it).
    • Your site doesn’t communicate the right message about your org’s brand.
    • You avoid sending people your URL for fear it will confuse them or push them away.
    • You can’t update the site’s content without either A) worrying about breaking something, or B) having to pay an expensive consultant to make simple changes.
    • Your site feels like it’s just kind of “there” and doesn’t really help your organization.
    • You recognize your site is a problem, but you don’t know where to start.
    • Your site just isn’t telling your story well and getting people to take action.

    We get it: you wear a hundred hats, and “website designer” isn’t one of them.

    Nonprofit website projects are frequently messy & painful. But they don’t have to be.

    When you’re trying to reach several audiences at once (program participants, donors, funders, volunteers, partners, the general public, and on and on), it’s easy to see why most nonprofit websites become confusing. Having a complicated mission you can’t communicate in one sentence, running many programs with different requirements, and needing to get board approval for the website only complicates the situation.

    So, you’re stuck: you have a website that isn’t getting you where you want to go. You need a new website for your org, but you have to avoid the common issues above at all costs. (Otherwise, you’ll just end up right where you are again as soon as you’ve redesigned the site.)

    What can you do?

    To grow, your nonprofit needs an online presence that resonates.

    Your org doesn’t need “just” a redesigned website. Redesigning your org’s site without the proper groundwork will put you right back where you started. Instead, you need a totally new approach—one that ensures you have an online presence that connects with your community.

    In short, you need a website that’s based on:

    • Your mission and vision
    • Your community’s needs, wants, and expectations
    • Your team and other stakeholders
    • Your plans for the future trajectory of your nonprofit
    • Your org’s brand and authentic connections with your visitors

    Are you ready to get a refreshed brand and website that resonates with your visitors, represents your org well, and empowers you to do more good in the world?
