We’re committed to making a difference
We place priority on giving back to our communities, both locally and across the U.S., and we believe that organizations can only be successful when they are engaged in making the world a better place.
Because of this belief, we give back to others through teaching, mentoring, volunteering, and donating our time and talents to, “leave this place better than we found it.”
Even though we learned some tough lessons about doing pro bono web design, we’ll still occasionally take on a project.
Nominate your favorite nonprofit to win a free website.
We meet organizations every day who are making an incredible impact but don’t have the budget to truly showcase their work.
Your nonprofit NEEDS a website!
Some incredible organizations don’t have the budget for custom website design or to hire an expert WordPress developer.
It is not unusual to encounter organizations that are dramatically changing the world for the better but don’t yet have a web presence to match their local impact and efforts.
We made a commitment to do whatever we could to help nonprofit organizations develop a professional online presence that helps them spread their mission, get more volunteers, and hopefully even bring in more donations.
We do this through our across-the-board discounts on all products and services for 501(c)(3) nonprofits. But beyond that,
We have decided to give away a complete website design and development package to a nonprofit organization located in our home state of Louisiana.
Just like every website we create – All aspects of the website will respond to and conform to any device screen size.

Content management system training.
We will provide backend access and train you on how to update your organization’s content.
