“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
– Anne Frank

Improved access to resources can drastically improve the quality of life for individuals with special needs, their care providers and their families.

Imagine a world where businesses give non profit organizations and for profit businesses serving the special needs community a leg up in reaching their goals by providing pro bono or low cost services. I want to be part of that world and I am taking part in creating it.

Many non profit organizations and for profit businesses that serve the special needs community don’t have websites, have outdated websites, disorganized content, or a lack of resources available on their website. The reasons vary but usually include insufficient funding or website development know-how. Notably businesses and organizations serving this unique community struggle for funding, sometimes just to stay afloat. This leaves the special needs community, caregivers, and family members without access to important information and resources.

Working together we can create or upgrade your website ensuring it is accessible and resource rich. The special needs community deserves websites that are easy to find, easy to understand with thoughtful designs and layout. After all, these resources may prove life changing for some individuals. That is why I am offering pro-bono WordPress website development services to 501(c)3 non-profit organizations serving the special needs community. My same excellent services are offered at a reduce rate to for profit businesses serving the special needs community. I will also teach you how to manage your website to continue to add more resources and value.

501(c)3 F.A.Q.

Can you set up my 501(c)3’s website to appeal to grantors?

All 501(c)3 websites I create use a list of best practices for grantors. There are a few things they are specifically looking before beyond the obvious (board members, mission statement, meeting minutes and annual reports available online) such as proof you are serving and making an impact on your target population.

Do you provide web hosting?

I provide a link to a great, hosting company called Site Ground. You are financially responsible for maintaining this account and you agree to give me access for the purposes of managing your web presence only.

Does Site Ground provide SSL certificates to secure our website?

Yes, Site Ground provides free SSL certificates to all domain names.

Do you provide domain name registration?

I recommend all of my clients register their own domain names for your peace of mind through Enom.com. Once the domain name is purchased and pointed to your web hosting server the only thing you need to do is maintain the annual fee directly to the registrar.

Will my website be generic or canned?

No! Every project I complete is a unique representation of the organization or business and designed to reach the customer/client base it serves.

Yes! If you already have a logo and color scheme you like I will create the visual aspects of your new web presence to match.

What kind of training is included?

I provide training to get you started with the WordPress environment via phone or Skype and also give direction to a plethora of resources for doing anything else you could ever want to do with your website.

Why are you doing this?

My step son has Autism and some of the kindest, most wonderful people I have met in my life do too. The special needs community doesn’t have enough resources. Since I believe in giving back and helping others I am applying my skillset to an area of great need.

What do I need to provide for the project?

Content for the pages, images to use through the website, pertinent information and statistics on population served for 501(c)3’s and other information covered during consultation.

How long is the waiting list for service?

I will cover this during the initial conversation as it depends on how many projects are in the cue.
