To serve as a catalyst for positive social change by leveraging modern technologies and best business practices.
Grassroots.org provides nonprofit organizations with free technological resources to build capacity and increase their efficiency. Serving more than one thousand nonprofits in the United States and Canada, Grassroots.org provides each organization with a suite of services designed to help achieve, sustain, and expand a strong Web presence. The organization's goal is to adopt 10,000 nonprofit members and provide them each with an average of $10,000 worth of services per year at no charge.
Outstanding Web Features:
Qualified nonprofit organizations can sign up and access the free, user-friendly tools included in the Nonprofit Toolbox. The suite of tools is designed to assist nonprofit organizations with the three phases of Web development: establishing a Web presence, enhancing content on the site, and expanding that presence. Phase-one "tools" include domain registration, Web hosting, and a free Web site builder powered by Doodlekit. In phase two, organizations can enhance the content on their site with language translation, virtual phone services, and volunteer Web site and graphic design programs. Phase-three tools include search engine optimization and, for select members, a free business consultation with an MBA student from the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. Visitors to the site can also download a free copy of Make Millions and Make Change! Strategies for Success and check the Grassroots.org blog for up-to-date news and announcements.
