Websites for Nonprofits

I have worked with a wide variety of clients, but my passion is for nonprofits. Through internships, jobs, and course work, I have come to believe in the power of mission-driven organizations to positively change the world. Small nonprofits with limited resources deserve high-quality websites just as much as huge corporations, and I’ve made it my business (literally) to build those sites.


I’ve been making websites for the past 10 years. I’ve worked or interned with:

I was also a founding member, leader, and web master for the Social Entrepreneurs of Grinnell, a microfinance nonprofit organization based in Grinnell, Iowa.


I now run MRW Web Design making WordPress websites for nonprofits and small businesses.

I also maintain Nonprofit WP with free advice for nonprofits using WordPress.
