What Features Should A Charity Website Have?

Kehorne work with a number of charities so we understand that a well-designed website is an essential tool for any non-profit organisation to effectively communicate its mission, attract donors, and engage with the community.

To ensure that a non-profit website is user-friendly and informative, it should have the following key features:

  1. Clear and well-organized navigation that makes it easy for visitors to find what they’re looking for.
  2. Accessibility features, such as alt tags for images and closed captioning for videos, to make the website accessible to all.
  3. Mobile-friendly design that ensures the website is accessible on any device.
  4. A clear and concise mission statement that defines the organisation’s purpose, values, and goals.
  5. High-quality visuals, such as photos and videos, that showcase your work and impact.
  6. Regularly updated news and events sections to keep supporters informed.
  7. Integration with social media platforms to increase engagement and spread awareness about your organisation and its work.
  8. Information about volunteer opportunities and how to get involved with your projects.
  9. A secure and easy-to-use donation page that accepts online donations.
  10. Impact reports that showcase how donations and volunteers have contributed to your mission.
  11. Testimonials or success stories from individuals who have been helped by your projects.
  12. Call-to-action buttons and contact information that encourages visitors to donate, volunteer, or get involved.
  13. Privacy policy and terms of service pages to ensure transparency and protect visitors’ data.
  14. Analytics tools to track website traffic and user behaviour, which can help you improve your online presence and engagement.

By incorporating these features, a non-profit can create a website that effectively communicates its mission, engages with its community, and drives donations and support for its projects.  Kehorne can use its experience of building charity and non-profit websites to give you a website that can work hard for your organisation.
