This is a collection of the best non profit WordPress themes for non profit organization, charity and foundation websites.
WordPress is a fantastic platform for running a non profit organization website because it’s open source and free. WordPress is also pretty easy to set up, update, and maintain, meaning you can do it all yourself. There are some good free themes available if you don’t want to spend any money on the design. But there are some great premium themes specifically designed with the non profit organization in mind. These premium themes give you a professional website design with the functionality required in a non profit website for a relatively small cost, avoiding the need to hire an expensive web designer.
The themes listed below all include specific features required in a non profit website. Features such as: donation and fundraising tools to receive online donations, fundraising / donation progress bars, newsletter and email signup integration, photo galleries, volunteer or staff profile pages, blog and more. Some of the themes also have the latest “responsive design” which provides a unique and tailored layout depending on which device (desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile) you are using – making your website mobile ready.
