Nonprofits do a lot of work around the world – promoting social courses, building communities, and championing equality and inclusive societies among others. In order to keep working on their projects and get help from society, these nonprofits need a way to highlight their work. This is where their websites come in.
In the digital age, websites have helped nonprofits do a lot, including highlighting their work, recruit and work with volunteers around the world without having to meet physically, receive donations, and partner with corporate institutions. But not every website is the same and the nonprofits that couldn’t build the best of websites miss out a lot. This is the time to change your digital strategy if you’re a nonprofit looking to leverage the digital age.
In this guide, we take you through some of the best nonprofit website designs. As an organization, you can take a lot of inspiration from these websites to build yours.

The International Wildlife Coexistence Network (IWCN)
The International Wildlife Coexistence Network “provides expert interdisciplinary assistance, training, collaboration, and shared research to enable communities around the globe to coexist with wildlife.”
From Lion guardians in Kenya and Bangalow Koalas in Australia to Wood River Wolf in Idaho, USA, the IWCN has a myriad of projects that seeks to leverage all available resources to take care of wildlife from extinction.
In order to highlight their work around the world, the IWCN has built a highly responsive, wildlife-themed, and professionally accessible website for all visitors. Not only does the website highlights their projects and team in spectacular ways, but the entire design, from the color choices to site navigation, also makes their website a great inspiration for any nonprofit organization. If you’re into wildlife, forestry, or any other nonprofit that has to do with preventing animals from going extinct, this website is a great inspiration.
