Raising funds online isn’t easy. Thank goodness there are useful social media marketing platforms like Kickstarter and Twitter. (Check out our tips for fundraising on Twitter and our coverage of some of the most successful social media fundraisers!) But if these tools aren’t flexible enough for your charity organization, political advocacy, or religious community – and if you think you’ll need a bigger Web presence, like a website or a blog – then you might as well create your own WordPress site.
WordPress is Lakeshore Branding’s recommended content management system (CMS). Why? Because it’s focused on aesthetics. Because it’s built on evolving and upcoming Web standards. And because it’s so easy to use.
To help rally your cause, we compiled this list of 25 WordPress themes sure to strike at the heart of your online audience. These WordPress themes are great for non-governmental institutions, public sector groups, charity organizations, environmental organizations, fundraising events and committees, advocacy groups, political aspirants, churches, religious communities, and even small business or Internet startups.

How to Automatically Backup Your WordPress Website

WordPress makes it really easy to add new pages, but at the same time makes it easy for someone to easily crash the site or delete a page on accident. Add that to the fact that hackers are always looking for a way to hack your website, one of the best investments you can make is setting up automated backups of your website. Backup Buddy not only backups up your site but also offers a security scan to make sure your site is always secure. Backup to your server, Amazon S3, Rackspace Cloud, FTP, or e-mail. Quickly and easily restore your site on the same server or migrate to a new server with a different domain and database. The process is easy, fast, and reliable. Check it out here on the Backup Buddy website. Want to see more WordPress themes?
