Does Your Nonprofit Need a New Website? As part of our commitment to community outreach and staying involved in West Michigan, LaFleur is excited to announce our annual Nonprofit Website Project. In 2020, we will partner with one West Michigan nonprofit organization, building them a new website and working with them to develop their digital content. Let the Team at LaFleur Design a New Website for You, Our 2020 Nonprofit Partner Our nonprofit partner for 2020 will receive a new website at no charge, but that’s just the beginning. They’ll also get: One year of web hosting services One round of design revisions during the initial website design process Five new pages of website content, optimized for SEO and built to drive conversions Migration of up to 20 pages from your current website One contact form or one other type of form on the new website If you need additional services like graphic design, brand development, or help with email marketing and automation, we’re happy to help at reasonable rates. LaFleur will promote the partnership on social media, and we’ll also examine analytics data and interview key members of your leadership team to create a case study that details the impact of your new website. How Do I Apply for the Nonprofit Website Project? Applications are now closed for 2020, but we plan to continue the nonprofit website program next year. We encourage you to apply when applications open back up in January! Nonprofit Organizations Are Vital to West Michigan’s Success In 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, Tyson’s Place, and HQ. We’ve been amazed by the West Michigan nonprofit community’s diversity and dedication. At LaFleur, we appreciate the way our local nonprofits help underserved populations and advocate for positive change in our community. We also realize how difficult it is to fund and operate a nonprofit organization, which is why we want to help by offering our professional web development services to one deserving nonprofit 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 nonprofits 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 created the annual LaFleur Nonprofit Website Project! Who Can Apply for the LaFleur Nonprofit 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 nonprofit with a team who shares our commitment to helping the diverse population of West Michigan grow and thrive. We’ll spend time reviewing every application that we receive, so make sure you exercise care and pay attention. Community Service Is a Core Value at LaFleur For the team at LaFleur, community service is more than an ideal — it’s a part of our culture. We know that putting time and effort into improving our local community not only brings our team closer together but also inspires others and helps our nonprofits deliver the services and support that people in West Michigan need. If you’d like more information about our community service initiatives, the LaFleur Nonprofit Website Project, or our digital marketing services, we’d love to hear from you. Just fill out our online contact form or call us at (888) 222-1512.
