12 Best Nonprofit Web Design Examples of 2017

By |February 3rd, 2017|Categories: Nonprofit, Web Design Examples|0 Comments

Here are 12 examples of timeless nonprofit web designs that deliver their organization’s message beautifully and in a clear and concise way. They all have a clear “call to action” that helps guide visitors to contact, fill out a form, or download information that will help the organization move forward in its mission.

Also, you will notice that each design highlights the services the organization provides in a unique value proposition(or in other words, a headline) that tells anyone who lands on their homepage exactly what they do, what the benefits are, and how they do it, in a compelling way.  In addition, each has a donation page that is easy to use and is easy to reach from every page on the website.
