WordPress is the leading content management system that powers over 40% of the web. No other platform even comes close, which is why we’re starting with WordPress.
What’s a WordPress theme?
If WordPress is like the make of your car, then WordPress Themes are like the model of your car. Themes allow your site to look different, function different and give your nonprofit website personality. Themes can have different colors, fonts, styles, settings and anything else that varies from one website to the next. In short, your theme is the skin of your website that can change.
Why do nonprofits use WordPress?
Nonprofits all around the world are seeing an increase in revenue after setting up and deploying WordPress for their organizational website. They immediately cut costs on developers, increase conversions for online donors and save time by getting things updated quickly and efficiently. On top of that, organizations around the world are using WordPress to manage their website due to it’s ease-of-use, increasing levels of security, improving functionality and an unprecedented online community of help, support, resources & plugins.
Why are these the best WordPress themes for nonprofits & charities?
The criteria was pretty straightforward. All themes must be available on a premium reseller marketplace, this weeds out the incompetent themes that aren’t commercial ready. All themes listed also must have an average rating of 4.2/5 or higher with more than 500 downloads. On top of that, all WordPress themes must look beautiful, have options for customizations and can collect donations out-of-the-box with a few clicks. Subjectively, we had to enjoy using the theme, browsing the theme, or had a positive experience with the theme for it to make the list. We did not include anything we cannot speak for ourselves.
