Helping Non-Profits Change the World with WordPress - WordCamp Portland 2015

Audio: https://vimeo.com/143630162

Non-Profits serve an incredible role in our community, continually giving of themselves and their time to enhance the greater good. As a WordPress web designer, I feel it is my role to help non-profits understand the many ways they can use WordPress to streamline their tasks and allow them to focus on their causes.

In this presentation, I will walk you through why WordPress is the perfect solution for non-profits, and share stories about three non-profits I had the pleasure of working with to help transform the way their organizations function. In particular, I will discuss how I helped improve their online fundraising experience, implemented an automated membership system to connect Rotarians around the world, and created a video sharing community all through WordPress features and WordPress Plugins.

If more organizations are able to learn and understand how to harness the offerings of WordPress, there is no limit to what they can do.
