Some WordPress CMS features that you can use from the initial installation and that are useful for any nonprofit:

Intuitive, well laid out back end
Easily add and manage pages
Media gallery with content that is easily embeddable
Add multiple users with different privileges
Easy to use editor
Set static front page

Five great plugins for non-profits :

Event Registration

Fundraising events, lectures, parties, classes, whatever event you’re organizing, the Event Registration Plugin can save you hundreds (if not thousands) ofdollars on event management tools. It was designed specifically with nonprofits in mind. Registration can be done directly through your website,
information can be exported to excel and secure payments can be made via Authorize.net, GooglePay or PayPal.

WordPress Paypal Donation

if you’re a charity then you may rely upon donations to keep going. From experience, I know that you need to make donating as easy as possible. Any signof difficulty can put potential donors off. Having a button on your website makes it super-easy.

Mailchimp Plugin – Having a solid mailing list is the backbone of any nonprofit. It’s important to be able to quickly email news and campaigns tomembers and supporters. In order to get that mailing list you need to make it easy for people to sign up. The Mailchimp plugin allows users to sign up for
your mailing list directly in your website.

WordPress Multilingual CMS – Many nonprofits operate internationally or with a wide audience speaking a number of different languages. WPML cantransform any site into a multilingual site. It’s free but has options for premium membership and paid professional translation.

Wordpress-Workshops-logo

More and more startups look towards WordPress to get their website off the ground, and for good reason! WordPress is Open Source, so you’re not locked into one vendor forever; it integrates well with search and social marketing; it’s easy to manage; and the themes are either free or cost very little! It’s many a startup’s dream come true.

However, getting a solid WordPress site off the ground is actually not so simple. First of all, it’s a website – it needs to take into consideration everything that any website needs to have, like usable navigation, organized content, calls-to-action, etc. In addition to the standard website issues, it’s important to go into setting up a WordPress site as an educated consumer.
