Free Tools For Nonprofit Organizations

The hosting comes complete with 24/7 technical support via telephone, email, or live chat, and can support Content Management Systems (CMS) such as Drupal, Joomla, and Wordpress.
Free Nonprofit Website Builder: Our website builder empowers even novice users to create professional websites that are eye-catching. The website builder comes complete with numerous backgrounds, stock images, and other customizable preferences--and like all our services, our website builder is free for nonprofits.
Free Web Design for Nonprofits: Our volunteer web design program pairs talented web-savvy volunteers with nonprofit organizations in need of assistance. Whether an organization is in need of a new site, or simply wants to revitalize their online presence, our designers are ready to help.
Free Graphic Design for Nonprofits: The volunteer graphic design program matches volunteer designers with organizations interested in developing graphic material for website and other purposes. Graphic designers work one-on-one with nonprofits to develop these materials.
Free Non-profit Language Translation: Our language translation program provides nonprofits with free access to an instant website translation service. With this service installed, one simple click allows a visitor to view a site in fifteen of the world's most popular languages.

Our Search Engine Optimization (SEO) program helps nonprofits to optimize their website's content through online educational materials and individualized consultations.
Project Consulting: Our social venture consulting program pairs talented MBA students from participating schools with nonprofits in semester-long project-based consulting partnerships. The program helps entrepreneurial nonprofits increase their organizational capacity by providing direct access to free business consulting.
Free Virtual Office for Nonprofits: Our free phone service program provides nonprofits with a toll-free "virtual office" number, complete with extension and voicemail capabilities. The "virtual office" number can ring any phone (landline or cell), allowing organizations to connect with clients, volunteers, and donors--regardless of location.
Online Marketplace: Our free online marketplace provides you with your own co-branded marketplace. By having your supporters do their online shopping at your marketplace, you will receive a percentage of the money that they spend shopping online.
Free Fundraising Tools: Grassroots.org has teamed up with Fundly.com and WePay.com to provide easy to use fundraising tools to take advantage of social media fundraising and to accept online donations while cultivating donors! Nonprofit members pay no upfront fees and set up is simple, a minimal processing fee (discounted for members) is charged for each donation. What is social media fundraising? Social media fundraising allows your organization to leverage technology in order to share your organizations story with an unlimited number existing and potential donors and stakeholders using facebook, twitter, linkedin, etc.
Free Password Manager and Secure Digital Wallet
Non-profits have dozens of web accounts to manage: email, cloud services, fundraising sites, social media, and more. They’re all protected with passwords, and all the passwords have to be strong (e.g. q6gh5Fh78U) and unique. Otherwise, they’re easy to hack, and if one account gets hacked, all other accounts with the same password are compromised. No one can remember that many strong, unique passwords, so a password manager is the best way to keep track of them all.
