Design Inspiration: 25 Non-Profit Websites

In the past we’ve focused on non-profit websites. In today’s post we’ll showcase another 25 well-designed websites belonging to non-profit organizations. While non-profits are always working with limited budgets, they have a need for an effective website and a growing number of organizations have recognized this need and placed a priority on the website. Here are some examples.

If your organization is looking for an affordable and professional website, please see the free websites that we have to offer for non-profit organizations and churches.

    Nice collection.

    Here is another non profit site which we created pro bono and launched earlier this year.

    Another site to add to the list: http://www.myggsa.co.za – a South African social networking site for non-profits.

  • Andrew, November 22, 2010

    I love the Desiring God website, their MP3/Video archive is excellent and super easy to use!

    We just launched one for our client here in Sydney who we think are leading the way in Australia – http://www.samaritanspurse.com.au/

  • Falling Up Media, November 23, 2010

    Great list, I have to say that the 1Love design struck me as the best

  • Carl - Web Courses Bangkok, November 23, 2010

    I really liked this one, we made a web site recently and it was nice to be able to use our skill to help a charity here in Thailand. Here is the web site http://www.camillianhomelatkrabang.org/

  • Brandon Cox, November 23, 2010

    Sweet collection! I knew some folks who worked for YWAM Ozarks but had never seen their site. Good stuff!

  • Mayur, November 23, 2010

    These are amazing designs, but creating such custom designs for wordpress will cost like so many thousands. And if there are free ones, those would be used by thousands of bloggers.

  • Philip Readman, November 23, 2010

    great collection…

    launched this not too long ago

    “Invisible Bracelet”, “Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation”, “JCC of Greater Pittsburgh”, and “Omid for Iran”, and especially “Desiring God” have the simplified features and intuitive layout that make them the most usable.
