Your website is the digital face of your organization or campaign. Though funds may be lower than desired for your web design, this is not an area where you should skimp when it comes to price or time. Well designed sites are more trustworthy. People are more likely to stay on your site and learn your story as well as contribute financially if they feel they can trust your organization.
Our tips for a well designed site:
Keep it Simple
- Don’t clutter your site with tons of random pictures,
- Use no more than 3 fonts (only use 2 if you can get away with it)
- Don’t go crazy with your color scheme. Your scheme and palette should reflect your mood as an organization. Need ideas? Adobe can help you with that
- Make sure your navigation easily to both find and use.
Show Your Purpose
Why do you want people to get involved in your organization? Why should they donate? Put this information up front and center, don’t hide it away!
Keep Your Site Current
No one likes finding outdated information when they are searching for contacts and events. Make sure your websites information is up-to-date. Being as up-to-date as possible will make your organization current and in turn visitors will be more trusting of the information you are providing.
And don’t forget, as this is your organization digital “face,” to show off your personality!
