You’ve worked hard to build your charity into a robust organisation. You have an army of passionate patrons, a great events team and your hard work is paying off. Meanwhile the gateway to your organisation, your website, lacks the impetus needed to turn new visitors into supporters.

So what is needed to make your charity website design engaging for visitors? At Oyster we’ve been working with not-for-profit organisations for years and have developed a winning formula to raise profile, create a positive user experience and ultimately increase donations.

An Introduction to Drupal

Open source means that the system is developed by a community of individuals that permit use of the systems by others for free - so there are no licences or user fees that you might find with some branded systems on the market. Drupal is easy to use out of the box and we can help to customise it for your needs. Here's a quick intro to the system.
