If you're looking to revamp your nonprofit's website, chances are you've poured over check lists just like this to make sure you're not missing a thing.
In previous blog posts, we’ve discussed how to make a beautiful website, what people are looking for in a website, and how to keep a web visitor’s interest.

We have some very exciting news to share with you!
Washington, D.C.-based 501cTECH, a leading provider of nonprofit technology services in the D.C. region has joined forces with Tech Impact.

Tech Impact's entire tech team will remain intact, allowing us to retain the personal touch and the first-hand knowledge of our customers’ needs that are so important to quality service delivery. The 501cTECH team will remain on board to run a Tech Impact office in Washington, D.C. and Julie Chapman, 501cTECH’s president and chief executive officer, will become the executive director of Tech Impact’s D.C. office and operations. Patrick Callihan will serve as the chief executive officer of the combined organization.
Did you know: 73 percent of first time donors do not give again?
There are many reasons contributors leave; sometimes they don’t feel appreciated, or don’t feel like part of the organization. While gaining new donors is always important, keeping them is even more so. If you can maintain just 10 percent higher than your current retention rate, your donations could go up 50 percent. By getting just a few dozen more donors to return, you can see an extreme boost in your budget.
