Media is getting more complex and users expect more from your nonprofit website
as you compete for their valuable time and attention. We build you a very professional
website customized to your needs and based on our 4,000+ website design library.
The customization includes innovative banner graphics that brand your organization
and quickly tell your visitors who you are and what you do.
However, we always have to remember that after a few seconds, the design no longer
the same value. It is your effective content, our advanced interactive features,
and an action oriented web page that will make your site a great success. If you
want more volunteers, a page for them to learn more is not enough. A quick volunteer
form asking for more information on that same page is what you need to create a
contact that could last for many years. With CharityAdvantage, your beautiful nonprofit
web design will make a positive first impression and the interactive and database
management tools will make your site more effective.
How much money have you earned online in the last five years? Without an industry
standard fundraising form right on your donation page and ready to engage your donors
and give them immediate interactivity, you have already lost their interest and
their support. It can happen that fast. Donors don’t like to click. They like
to donate. We make it easy for them.
Your new donations page becomes your portal to online funding. You can raise funds
for all your campaigns and appeals in one place. As you send mass emails and use
social media connections to drive traffic to this page, your fundraising success
begins. Your donors want to support you but they need to learn of your needs (donor
education), understand how their funding solves problems (donor empowerment) and
make their giving decision (donor action). Our online donations system is designed
with the intelligence you need to succeed in the competition for donor funds.
The marketing method with the highest response rate is email and mass email multiplies
the effect. With your website database collecting email addresses of those joining
your mailing list, contacting you with questions, making donations, and using your
custom forms like events, volunteers and more, you now have a base to grow your
organization through effective mass email communication.
Our mass emailer allows you to send compelling emails with relevant subjects to
segments of your list or your entire list with one click. You must tell the world
about your work, its success, and the impact it is making and do it often. Nonprofits
don’t stand still. Your constituents need to hear about how you are moving forward,
solving problems, and achieving success. Then they are ready to donate knowing that
their valuable dollars are being used to generate more success.
Sharing files and documents is easy using our cloud based technology. Uploading
audio, video, and other documents such as PDF’s can be done on a daily basis
and it can offer you the ability to collaborate with other team members.
Many of our users create Secure Pages (explained below) and use the Cloud to share information with particular groups that require a login. You can share information with members, volunteers, staff, board members and more. You can also share information with just one person. For example, if you needed to share sensitive data with one person, you could upload the data to the cloud, and only the assigned person could have access.
You may be using a mobile device right now to view our site. We expect that many
of your web users will be using mobile as well. Your new website will be mobile
friendly for their ease of viewing as well as completing transactions such as online
donations, event registrations, volunteer forms, etc.
You may also use a mobile device to log into your CharityAdvantage account and use some of the features and tools. Our system is designed for the latest mobile technologies and works on all mobile platforms.
We have a complete online donation system for donors, but perhaps you need to sell
products online or collect payments for events, renewals or more.
Our online store and shopping cart can handle two products or several hundred. Inventory,
sales tax, and shipping are just a few of its many features. For other transactions
such as membership payments or event registrations, you can use our custom form
builder to create your form and then connect it to a payment processor for credit/debit
Some organizations have the need to offer login permissions to certain groups so
the group can see information that only pertains to them. Our system allows you
to create unlimited groups and manage the login information for each user.
You can then add web pages specific to each group and offer each group their own
unique web experience. You can even have users log into an entire portal of secure
web pages that only they can view with its own menu and “home” page.
We often wonder why some hosting companies use budget servers. CharityAdvantage
always uses the fastest servers with latest technology.
Our engineers monitor our systems 24/7 and our hosting environment uses all the
industry standard security protocols to insure your data safety. Our backup procedures
are timely and thorough.
Your website is your message and a main marketing channel to your constituents.
With a fast changing world of content and information, it is critical that you keep
your site fresh and timely. Managing your website is simple with our sophisticated
Based on an easy to use Microsoft Office platform with familiar tools and icons,
your web content is right where you need it – in front of you ready for edits and
exciting content. No technical skills or web design experience are needed and support
is always available.
Most businesses rely on data for success and the field of marketing is largely based
on this. Nonprofits must be competitive marketers as well and this means intelligent
communications, mass emailing, digital fundraising and more. Unfortunately, most
nonprofits do not have the budgets for a website that also has a database collecting
information from all their interactive forms online. As a matter of fact, less than
1% of all nonprofits are using database technology and those that do are investing
a lot of money in those systems.
CharityAdvantage includes a powerful database management system at no extra cost.
You will find incredible value in this added feature, and come to rely on it in
many areas of your nonprofit’s administration. Our database system collects information,
in a highly secure hosting environment, from all the forms that are on your website
including “Join Our List” (can be on every page), “Contact Us” (can be on every
page), “Donate Now” (one page, one form), and “Custom Forms” (with unlimited possibilities
like events, applications, volunteers, memberships, and more). Use CharityAdvantage
as your database manager by logging into your account and interact with your records,
and/or export the data to your own internal systems, and/or send out mass email
to different segments or everyone in your database.
Calendars are a popular form of website interactivity. If your organization posts
events on a calendar your users will find it easy to learn more about them and take
action. Our system enables you to enter the time, date, location, and full description
for all your events. If you have a dedicated web page for a particular event, you
can insert a link into your calendar description.
If you need a form so attendees can register for an event, you can use our custom
form feature to build the form to your exact requirements and then edit it anytime.
Connect your form to ecommerce credit/debit cards using our system. With full database
connectivity of all online forms, you will also have records of all attendees and
be able to send mass email to them as a segment using our mass emailer. From posting
an event on a calendar to sending out mass email to attendees, our system has everything
you need to manage your event including information, registration, payment, and
Facebook, You Tube, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and others all serve
a unique purpose but your website is the only main digital portal into your nonprofit.
Sending traffic to your website from social media sites can be one of their main
purposes since once users are on your site there is much more to do. They can also
connect with other social media through your site using links, icons, plug-ins,
and feeds. Your site will always be the center of your web world and can serve as
a central source of your social media.
Sometimes you need a custom form built to your exact needs and the ability to change
it at any time. Our form builder offers that advanced capability and also connects
to your database so all your information is saved.
Custom forms are perfect for applications, registrations, volunteers, employees,
members, etc. You can have as many custom forms as you want with each one connecting
to a different segment in your database. This offers you the features of interacting,
exporting, and/or mass emailing any segment any time.
You need qualified traffic to your website from Google and other search engines.
Users need relevant information about your website displayed on search engines to
know if a click should take place. We can help you generate that traffic to your
Every web page can be optimized for search engines with the exact Page Title, Page
Description and Keywords so the intelligent connection can be made. That means that
your Volunteer page can be optimized to recruit those searching specifically for
“volunteers” both in your “geographic area” and in your
“area of service”.
If you need to post photos on your nonprofit website our latest photo gallery software
will impress your website users.
Other plug-ins include our popular discussion forums, survey polls, mini calendars,
what’s new postings, national news based on topic, mailing list forms, and more.
Even though our system is easy to use, there may be times when you have a question
and require support. Our highly trained staff has many years of experience in our
technology and understands your needs. Because we offer so many features and each
one has so many options, most questions revolve around functionality.
Users ask questions like “Can I put more than one event on a calendar day”,
“Can I edit the donation’s acknowledgement email that is sent after
my donor completes the form”, and so many more. The usual answer is “Yes”.
CharityAdvantage is a full service provider for nonprofits and our entire system
is fully integrative. Modules communicate with each other and advanced intelligence
is built into the entire system which we support.
Many users who come to us have a web host, a web company (because they can’t
edit their own site), a donations provider, a mass email provider, a calendar or
events provider and more. With CharityAdvantage as your digital partner, we bring
all those pieces together in one easy to use service that gives you support in one
place. Your time is valuable and we make it easier for you to manage your web solution.
