Improving user experience (UX) reduces friction between you and your donors. That means you can better engage new and existing donors and build a loyal and responsive base!
By making it easy to understand who you are, what you do, and why you do it, you can inspire your audience to act — not just by donating, but also by volunteering, becoming a member, attending events, and more.
A highly functional website with engaging content helps communicate your story and win over visitors. That means you’ll be better able to build trust and expand your reach.
Nonprofits often struggle with limited resources, strained budgets, and small teams, which can make it nearly impossible to get things done.
But if you want your organization to thrive, your website is actually one of your most valuable assets.
When done right, your website can be a powerful tool for driving action and building relationships with donors, volunteers, and advocates.
But that doesn’t mean just any kind of website will do.
If your website isn’t fast, modern, and focused on providing the best possible user experience... you could be driving visitors away and losing precious opportunities to connect with your audience and garner support.
In fact, one study by Nielsen Norman Group found that when a visitor spends time on a nonprofit’s website and chooses not to donate — in nearly half of all cases it’s because the website is difficult to use and navigate!
In other words, without an optimized website, you’re effectively leaving money and resources on the table... money and resources that could be helping your nonprofit fulfill its mission.
Rcktshp specializes in building professional, modern websites for nonprofits and social impact businesses. And as part of our own mission to give back, we’re offering to build a website for one value-aligned nonprofit — for free.
That means that your nonprofit may be able to get a custom-built website that doesn’t just look good... but also incorporates the latest web development, UX, and SEO best practices.
Imagine what your nonprofit could do with a steady flow of donations, engaged supporters and advocates, and the resources to fuel your growth and expand your reach.
An optimized website can get you closer to that reality.
Under the Rcktshp Pro Bono Project, we’re offering a comprehensive website package that includes:
1. A modern homepage with clear, engaging content and a primary call to action
2. An 'about' page that connects with your audience and effectively conveys who you are, what you do, and why you do it
3. A 'contact' page for easy communication with donors, volunteers, the media, and others
4. A 'donation' page that encourages giving and makes the process as frictionless as possible
5. A blog or news page to help you stay connected with your audience and communicate important announcements
We know you’re short on time and resources, so we’ll make sure your new website is easy to maintain. We’ll also provide onboarding training so you can learn how to update your site internally and easily!
Rcktshp is a 100% remote web development and digital marketing agency dedicated to serving organizations and businesses on a mission. Our own mission is two-fold:
• Help nonprofits and social impact businesses reach their goals and spread awareness through modern websites and digital marketing.
• Help marginalized individuals learn highly-needed skills, like web development and digital marketing, so they can grow in their careers and create positive impact through their own work.
Our team includes only well-vetted web developers and UX designers trained on the most up-to-date practices — so you can be sure you’ll get a great-looking, functional website designed to help you make a bigger impact than ever before!
Yes — and there’s no catch! We’re committed to supporting value-aligned nonprofits. As a way to give back, we’re offering our web development services for free to one nonprofit organization. Through a collaborative process, we’ll build a 5-page website that’s fast, modern, and most importantly — drives action. That means more donations, engagement, and support to help you fulfill your mission.
If your website was built a long time ago, or built by someone without knowledge of the latest best practices in UX design, web development, SEO, and content creation, chances are it's not performing as well as it could. Whether you know you need a brand new website, or you just think your website could be working harder, we’d love to hear from you!
We understand that many nonprofits have limited resources. That’s why we’ll make your new website easy to update. We also provide onboarding training once the website is built so your team can learn how to make updates without hiring expensive contractors.
Just enter your email address in the form below. We’ll get in touch with a brief survey so we can learn more about your nonprofit and what you do. If it looks like we may be a good match, we’ll set up a virtual meeting to explore the project with you in more detail. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to ask us questions and share your goals and ideas. If we’re both happy to proceed, we’ll get started right away!
First: If you’re ready to see the benefits of a fast, modern website for your nonprofit, just enter your email address below and we’ll send you a short initial survey.
Then: We’ll review your survey. If we think we can help you, we’ll reach out to set up a virtual meeting. During that meeting, we’ll explore in more detail whether your nonprofit’s website is a good fit for the Rcktshp Pro Bono Project.
If your nonprofit is chosen for the Rcktshp Pro Bono Project, we’ll follow our usual process for designing and building a website. It’ll start with a series of virtual meetings to further discuss your mission and goals and end with a live, fully optimized website!
