Five great plugins for non-profits :
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.
