Web Development

Web development for Associations and Non-profits

Web development (and website development) generally describes the somewhat technical process of writing code and organising the infrastructure required to support a website.

Sometimes the terms ‘web development’ and ‘web design’ are used interchangeably, referring to the entire process of creating a website. However there are important differences that we need to be aware of to ensure that the project is understood and successful.

Additionally there are critical elements of successful Associations and non-profit organisations websites that require web development expertise.

Generally when a website needs to be interactive or it must facilitate specific functions for visitors (rather than just looking great!) the quantity of development work as a percentage of the project is higher and will take precedence.Sometimes (e.g. if the website is for brand promotion only) very little development work is needed.

What is different about Website Development for not-for-profit organisations?

The best associations and non-profit organisations websites facilitate a number of interactions with website visitors, implementing these features can require web development. Over the years we have observed and noted these critical functions, and have documented them in our ‘Top 10 features of an Association‘ guide.  These functions  include:

  1. Transactions (e.g. donations or payments)
  2. Contact databases and online subscribes
  3. Membership joins
  4. Account set up and logins
  5. Online bookings for events
  6. Online registrations for courses

When these types of functions are required, usually development work is required.

At LCubed we have been delivering websites for non-profits since inception in 2002. Over this time we have learned much about how non-profits operate and how those operations be supported via websites and more widely the web itself.

These learnings have allowed us to identify a variety of online tools and systems that can be used during website development to reduce time, expense and risk associated with them. We have a number of online systems that we deploy for associations and non-profits including our Member Manager solution.
