Non-Profit Website Management Platform

Hi Expert Community,

I am on the board of a local non-profit organization that needs to update both its website and the underlying content management system.

Does anyone know of any website management platforms geared at non-profit organizations that would come with pre-built site templates and content management capabilities?

Budget is around $5,000.

Thanks,

Brian

Are you a Chamber of Commerce, or some other kind of non-profit organization that has members and hosts events that need to be managed? Or are you just looking for a simple website content pages + announcements + blog type setup?

Hi Frosty,

This is for a non-profit organization that serves abused and neglected children.

For the most part - we just need simple website content pages and announcements.

The non-profit hosts approximately four fundraising events a year - if it is possible to manage ticket sales and in-kind donations for these events it would be a plus.

Thanks

Hi Brian,

Any other requirements?  From the above,  I would suggest WordPress + Gravity Forms + a payment gateway.

Do the event tickets have any other requirements?

What are the email distribution needs and how does the site integrate?

Simple donations or automated recurring?
Hi Jason,

I kept the requirements pretty simple, because their highest priority is to get a simple website for $5k or less that allows their staff to manage their own content.

auctionreg,org is currently used for event registration; maxgiving.com is currently used for donations; Constant Contact is currently used for email marketing. These third parties can stay in place, or be replaced if there is a better solution.

For the local sports leagues for which I am a board member, I found a very high quality, low cost solution through Blue Sombrero (see http://www.sloyouthbaseball.com ) I was hoping there may be an equivalent for non-sports-related non profits.

A basic Wordpress site may be the best bet, designed through a web designer. However, if there is a templated website package available that may be more cost effective.

Thanks
