Simple Non-Profit WordPress Theme
With this free WordPress theme any non-profit organization can have an effective website. It includes features to showcase your programs and events, and several elements are easily customizable. Organizations with limited budgets can present a professional image with this WordPress theme.

This WordPress theme was created with non-profit organizations in mind, including features that are needed by most organization websites. The homepage slider allows you to promote your programs and services, or attract attention to any initiative. Images in the slider can be linked to any page.
Most organizations have a lot of events going on, and with this theme you can have an effective event calendar. The homepage even displays 5 upcoming events for added exposure. When you set up the events you insert the date and time, and as it passes the event will be automatically removed from your site so you don’t have to remember to delete each event as it occurs.
The theme also includes a custom post type for news announcements, so you can publish press releases or other announcements and have them featured on your website. As with any WordPress-based site, blogging functionality is included. The theme’s home page template includes links to the most recent blog posts.
WordPress’s custom navigation menu feature is used for both the header and footer menus, so you have complete control over the links that are shown in your menus. The header menu supports drop downs.
From the WordPress dashboard you can enter links to your Facebook page and Twitter profile and the footer icons will be linked appropriately. If you don’t have social media profiles, simply leave the URL fields blank and no icons will be displayed.
