How Do I Apply for the Non-Profit Website Project?We’ll publish an announcement describing the formal application process in early 2019. However, you can expect that you’ll need to tell us about your mission, describe your current marketing campaigns, explain why you need a new website, and provide us with information about your fund development efforts. Non-Profit Organizations Are Vital to West Michigan’s SuccessIn 2018, our team set forth to devote time each month for community service. Since then, our activities have included packing sack suppers for Kids’ Food Basket, donating blood to the American Red Cross, rebuilding a playground with the Friends of Grand Rapids Parks, and providing digital content and technical assistance for both Thrive: A Refugee Support Program and Tyson’s Place.We’ve been amazed by the West Michigan non-profit community’s diversity and dedication. At LaFleur, we appreciate the way our local non-profits help underserved populations and advocate for positive change in our community. We also realize how difficult it is to fund and operate a non-profit organization, which is why we want to help by offering our professional web development services to one deserving non-profit at no cost.A good website does more than explain your services and mission. It can serve as a powerful fund development tool and convert readers into volunteers, donors, and advocates for your organization.We know it can be expensive and time-consuming to create a professional, SEO-optimized site filled with high-quality content and many non-profits simply don’t have the resources to create the online presence that reflects the full scope and diversity of their organization. That's why we have created the annual LaFleur Non-Profit Website Project! Who Can Apply for the LaFleur Non-Profit Website Project?Your organization must meet the following criteria to apply:You must have 501(c)(3) status.You must agree to participate in interviews regarding the project (to be used in the case study and for other promotional purposes) and allow us to publicize our involvement.You must operate within 50 miles of Grand Rapids, MI.You cannot have an e-commerce site. (Donation buttons are okay.)You must share your current and anticipated funding numbers with us.If requested, you must provide documentation that proves you have non-discrimination policies in place.We’re looking for a non-profit with a team who shares our commitment to helping the diverse population of West Michigan grow and thrive.
