WordPress: Best Plugins for Nonprofit Sites


WordPress is a great content management system (CMS) for many websites, profit and nonprofit sites alike. But, since a lot of nonprofits run on a tight budget, they can benefit greatly from the variety of affordable plugins that WordPress provides.  Below are some of the best tools for non-profits:

  • Give
    Give is a plugin that allows sites to accept online donations. It’s able to seamlessly integrate with PayPal, MailChimp, Aweber and other popular services. What’s great about Give is that you can easily manage donations from the WordPress Dashboard.
  • OptinMonster
    OptinMonster is touted as the “best lead generation tool in the market” by WPBeginner. The tool allows you to turn visitors into subscribers and donors.
  • Yoast SEO
    Yoast is a site optimization tool. It helps optimize your posts and pages for search engines. It gives you tips on how to structure your content to help with search engine rankings.
  • Google Analytics
    A completely free tool from Google that allows you to see how users are behaving on your website. It gives you data on how people are getting to your site, which page in your site is most popular to users, and how much time people are spending on your website. Best of all Google Analytics integrates with Yoast SEO so you can see all the data from your WordPress Dashboard.
  • Sucuri Free Scanner
    Sucuri is one of the best plugins out there preventing malicious attacks on websites. Sucuri is not free, however the scanner is!
