Nonprofit Website Design Examples Criteria

What makes a great nonprofit website?

  • It aligns with your goals: The website should effectively communicate your core message and inspire visitors to take action, whether it's donating, volunteering, or spreading awareness.
  • Your brand stands out: Your nonprofit website should reflect your organization's brand identity and stand out from the crowd. Consistent branding elements, such as logos, colors, and typography, can help create a cohesive and memorable experience.
  • It’s easy to find what you need: Great UX will lead to people coming back.
  • Optimized for SEO and accessibility: To reach people through search engines, your site should be optimized with relevant keywords, valuable content, and ensure it has metadata. Plus, make sure it’s ADA compliant.
  • Easy to make edits: Nobody wants a website that is hard to maintain and we have to reach out to a third party to make edits.  
  • Connects with your tech stack (i.e., donation tools, CRM, hiring software) seamlessly: This is a big one. You don’t want to pick a website builder that makes it difficult to connect with your existing stack

With that being, we’ll dive into our favorite nonprofit website examples!

Health Nonprofit Website Design Examples

Peer Health Exchange

Our top nonprofit health website example is Peer Health Exchange (PHE), a national nonprofit focused on giving young people the resources they need to make healthy decisions.

Peer Health Exchange is a national nonprofit for youth health and education

They partnered with us to build a website that catered to the unique preferences and interests of 13-18 year olds. Peer Health Exchange turned to Webflow for design and development to make their site easy to edit!

To breathe life into the website, we introduced Lottie animations, a lightweight solution that added visual appeal without compromising performance. The site came alive with splashes of gradients, tasteful animations, and small interactions that conveyed the story of Peer Health Exchange.

Keeping young people at the core, Peer Health Exchange prioritized young people’s needs and perspectives throughout the website design process. Brand discovery workshops were conducted with young individuals from Peer Health Exchange's Youth Advisory Board to gather insights and align the website's direction with their preferences. From the home page to the careers page, the organization's commitment to empowering young individuals shone through.

Black Girls CODE is a nonprofit organization that aims to empower and equip young Black girls and women with the skills and knowledge in computer programming and technology. Founded by Kimberly Bryant in 2011, Black Girls CODE seeks to address the underrepresentation of Black women in the tech industry by providing educational opportunities and resources.

We love it because the brand is just spot on, copy is strong, and the design speaks for itself.
