The gu Digital Fundraising Kit – the all-in-one NGO website toolkit

Many organizations know the predicament: a natural disaster such as an earthquake or weather extremes, political instability, and any kind of unrest that requires immediate support. But resources at organizations are usually limited. A fast, uncomplicated implementation of fundraising measures fails. We counteract this with the Digital Fundraising Kit (DFK): a website builder that enables organizations to launch a completely new NGO website within a short period of time – optimized for online fundraising and completely self-sufficient.

Challenges – Outdated NGO Website Systems Prevent Successful Online Fundraising went live with the 2013 flood disaster in Central Europe and even then made an important contribution as a signpost for those willing to donate. But 8 years after its launch, the website was not only technically outdated, but also of very limited use on mobile devices. But with such natural disasters, there is not only a lack of time, there is also a lack of resources to launch a new, functioning website in a timely manner that is attractive to the user and instils a feeling of trust.

Solution – gu DFK, a solid NGO website builder with easy connectivity options.

The “Digital Fundraising Kit” developed by getunik includes a website builder that is fully geared towards the needs of small organizations. The website can be made available within a short time due to the standardized toolkit system and the customer receives a WordPress-based website with design settings already adjusted to the organization. In addition, there are templates for important page types such as the homepage, donation pages or a project page – all of course based on best practices and many years of digital fundraising experience. In the case of, the donation system was deliberately not used. Donation income goes directly to the organizations shown on the website. That is of course also possible.

«Creating an NGO website is always a lot of work, but thanks to the solid wordpress introduction and groundwork, I had a clear understanding of the site and was able to focus on the content.»

Implementation – From briefing to content capture in two days

The setup of the system was completed in record time – in two days to be exact. Following the briefing, a WordPress-based NGO website was set up on the basis of the modular Website Builder of the Digital Fundraising Kit. Important pre-settings had already been made, the system is basically “Ready to Go Live”. To make content creation easier, getunik had created system-relevant pages (such as the 404 page) as well as exemplary content pages (project page, home page) as templates. Design settings (logo, fonts, colors, buttons, favicon) had also been made. Two days after the kick-off, a CMS user training session was held and the team was able to start directly with content creation. Thus, the website was brought to life within a very short time and could go live after only a few days.

Effect – A modern website with an eye-catching appearance

The main task of is to guarantee that only legitimate organizations collect donations on the NGO website. thus acts as a signpost and draws attention to the many different organizations that provide rapid assistance in the event of a disaster.
