Technology has changed the landscape of giving. This isn’t something that’s happening; it’s already here. Nonprofits don’t have a choice about keeping up with tech - we either evolve or become irrelevant.
Many nonprofits feel they have caught up with technology because they invested in a new website. Having a donate button on your homepage is a great foundation, but it doesn’t go far enough to engage donors.
In the past, building a great website was only possible with a large budget and deep technical skills. Nowadays, price and technical difficulty are still two of the most common misconceptions when it comes to getting online.
Before you hit “Record,” there are a few more things you need to consider and test.

We are awash in a sea of data, and we’re not handling it well. Literally. Nonprofits, like every other organization or corporation, are taking in more information than ever before, and more than we know how to handle.
Often referred to as a “web address” or a “URL”, a domain name is the place where your website lives. Simply put, it’s what people type into a browser to arrive at your site. Domain names make it easy for your audience to find you online. Think of them as the street addresses of the Internet - unlike longitude and latitude, a street address is easy to read and remember.
