What would you do if your nonprofit's only web presence and online fundraising were in Facebook?
I recently loaded Facebook but got this page. Apparently, Facebook was experiencing instability. While it still happens frequently with Twitter, this is rare in my experience of Facebook. But it serves as a good warning.
Don't limit your fundraising to Facebook
Can you imagine how you'd feel if your only web presence were a page on Facebook? And your only online giving option was through Facebook?
Getting a page like this would mean your cause was invisible on the web.
Don't let this happen to you. Getting your own website isn't expensive. I use BlueHost [affiliate link] and a free WordPress blog software. A simple WordPress backup plugin automatically backs up my site each week and sends me a copy of the backup.
It's not perfect, but at least there's a web presence when sites like Facebook go down.
