In recent years, charitable organisations have had to shift focus and embrace digital change and adopt a business approach. Online marketing is now crucial in order to promote services and attract both volunteers and donations. To qualify for funding, there is also a need to provide quantifiable data to evidence outcomes.
We have experience in supporting not-for-profit organisations with charity website design. We understand the importance of providing a fully functional website at a cost effective price.
Charity website design can include functionality that enables:
- Donations to be processed online,
- The set up a regular direct debit donation,
- Event promotion and booking,
- Newsletter signup,
- Tickets sales and auctions,
- Secure sharing of documents, reports and forms.
Framework Digital can clearly divide the website, directing supporters to different information than service users. We can also set up varying levels of access, so documents can be securely shared with relevant parties.
Furthermore, with Analytics capturing all activity on the website, it is possible to collect relevant data for reports, funding applications and reviews.
Cost Effective Charity Website Design
In a bid to support both charities and the next generation of digital enthusiasts, we’ve developed an idea which allows us to provide digital services at a cost effective price.
Framework Digital works in collaboration with Bucks University Training College (UTC). We invite Business IT students to assist with charity website design projects. We support the students at every stage of the design and development process and allow them to put their skills to good use.
Benefits to the Charity
For your charity, it could be an opportunity to get a fully functioning, mobile responsive website, a domain name (if required) and annual hosting and ongoing support at discounted fee. This has proven to be an ideal solution for many charities.
Benefits to the Students
However students work is overseen by our full-time designer, this allows students to experience genuine deadlines and work to a customer’s requirements. It develops the skills that they are learning in the classroom and helps them to understand how their learning will apply in the real world.
