The “Cause and Affect Program” was designed as an affordable option for Nonprofit Organizations to be able to move forward with high-performing nonprofit websites.
What is the “Cause and Affect Program”?
After decades in the business of building Small Business and eCommerce Websites, BPetersonDesign saw the need Nonprofits had – not just for affordable website design, but a website that would actually perform for their cause. That’s when we created our “Cause and Affect Program.” This would allow our company to “Give Back” in ways where our talent can make a serious impact.
Yes, the name of this program is no typo! We chose this name as fun wordplay. You have a cause, and we will put that into action. The word “affect” is a verb, and means to make a difference and cause a change in something. And through this program, we intend to do just that! We are taking action and building websites with the intention to help make a difference for nonprofit organizations. A great website will help expand your reach, boost your efforts, and cause more conversions, and we want nonprofits who give back every day to have an even better chance of getting their name and cause out there.
BPetersonDesign covers half of the development fee, making all of our website packages 50% Off.
To qualify, your organization must be a 501(c)(3). Upon proof that your nonprofit is a 501(c)(3), we will move forward with the website design process.
Here’s What Our All-In-One Packages Include:
In-House Site Hosting

Monthly Website Care Report
Keep your site up-to-date with the latest security and performance technology
Our responsive website design is crucial for collecting donations for your cause. We will make sure your site will look great and it will function perfectly on all devices, which include phones, tablets, and desktops. This will make your website Google friendly… and user-friendly, too! How your website responds to different screen sizes is crucial for your web design. If your users are frustrated with your design because it doesn’t respond to the device they are using, they will leave your website. This affects your bounce rate and leads to bad Google ranking.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
SEO is more than just Google keywords and phrases. It’s about the user experience as a whole. We’ll help make sure your target audience will find your business website once it has launched. Choosing the best target phrases and having original and the most relevant content to reach your target audience is crucial for your website. While the content will come from you, our SEO Specialists will add in SEO-Rich content within the write-ups you send us. That is why working with our team will have maximum results when building your new web design.
Your assigned point-of-contact will work with you to make sure your website has the content it needs. You will be responsible for what pages you want on your website and the content to go on those pages. No one knows your company or business plan better than you. Our staff will be responsible for strategically putting together the website layout that best meets your goals.
Our included Monthly Maintenance Package gives you the opportunity to improve your web design after it’s launched. Making small updates to your website once it’s live keeps it from looking stagnant, which would have a negative impact to search engines. Keeping your website updated keeps your followers informed and your content evolving.
Your new website will have Google Analytics, which will allow you to see who’s interested in your business and will allow you to discover who is visiting your site and how they’re engaging with it. The statistics don’t lie! This will help to determine what updates should be made to your website and how you can better cater to your audience.

PREMIER Great for sites with a lot of existing content.
Your website content comes from you! Our Content Creators will take the write-ups you give us and help make it sound professional, while implementing SEO (Search Engine Optimization) within the content. You will be working with a point-of-contact to streamline the system so you’re only working with 1 person from our team. We can also grab the content that’s already up on your existing website. You can edit, add, or remove anything once your new website is launched.
The pages you receive depends on which package you choose. Once you consult with our team and decide on what content will be displayed on your new website, we can then narrow down the total pages that will be displayed on your professional business website.
Yes! BPetersonDesign prefers that you use your existing domain (this is best practice for SEO as well). We will need your credentials to your provider in order to transfer your site from your old hosting to our hosting.
We recommend replacing your existing site with your new nonprofit website so your content and placement doesn’t conflict with each other. By keeping your old site up and running and launching a new website, the sites may have duplicate content which will be ignored by Google. Having duplicate content and multiple websites will diminish any efforts towards SEO and great ranking on search engines.
You get a set amount of hours for monthly updates with each website package. If the change request exceeds the allotted time in your monthly plan, we will let you know. Our hourly web development rate outside of your chosen package is $75/hour.
No. View our E-commerce Website Design Packages Here. This will allow your customers a seamless online shopping experience on your new website. We will help walk you through the steps of what to consider including state-to-state tax options, payment processors, shipping options, and more. Inquire about e-commerce website prices for your non-profit organization.
We will launch your completed website in a matter of weeks, not months, as long as you do your part in sending us all your content. If you’re not able to send us all your content within two weeks, no worries, we will launch the website with what we have and then will make your requested monthly updates.
No, websites do not come with graphic design work included.
What We Need to Start Your Website:
You will be assigned an Account Manager that you will work with through the development of your website. They will provide you step-by-step emails for each phase. This will ensure that we get everything we need to start your website without overwhelming you with a large running list.
