Why Us

Dot Org Web Works offers nonprofit website design in Portland. We specialize in custom website development and web presence upkeep for the nonprofit sector. Not just for Portland, Oregon charities, but for nonprofits in Los Angeles and other major U.S. cities.  Furthering the mission of nonprofits is our passion — Portland is our community. Like you, we’re tasked with helping to make our world a better place.

Your Website

We know that building an effective and user-friendly website on a nonprofit’s budget can be daunting. But, don’t despair. We’ll shepherd you through it all, from branding to development, to going live. We’ll ask all of the right questions, offer the best options, and see you through to the end. With more than two decades of working with the nonprofit sector in the social marketing arena, you’ll be in the right hands.

A Nice Fit

Being smartphone-friendly (responsive) is one of the key factors for a successful nonprofit website. About half of your Portland-area viewers will visit your website on something other than a desktop or laptop computer. Even more so if your visitors are experiencing homelessness. We can make your website look great from big monitors to small handheld devices.

We’ll Help You Reach Out to Portland

Within the Portland metro area, there are nearly 900 human service organizations*. Some operate with only a single passionate individual on a part-time basis, while many employ dozens, and some even hundreds. The fact is that all these organizations, although nonprofit, must still “conduct business” so that their “product” can be made widely available — to best serve their organization’s mission. The product might be access to health care, emergency food, housing, or scouting and scholarships. And with any good business, a cost-effective medium to showcase the product is essential for survival.

Nonprofit organizations rely heavily on digital resources like websites and social media to connect with their supporters and spread their message. This holds whether the organization is based in Portland or Pittsburgh. But it is the website that is the most comprehensive. It serves as the open door to the organization’s people, history, and services. And like a business, you need to shine above the “competition.” (You know, the friendly competitors you often engage with and share a similar dedication to serving others.)

The website branding is what sets apart your product from that of another organization offering a similar product, and can convince the viewer that your venue is a superior choice. Maybe it offers a better return on social investment for potential donors or provides a service that is more tailored to the actual needs of clients seeking assistance. That is where Dot Org Web Works can make a difference.

We’ll help you identify and communicate your strengths and value within an affordable user-friendly interface; an outreach tool that you will be very proud of. Take a moment to see some of our work. Then contact us if you agree we might be a nice fit.
