A Cause to Design

Pro bono nonprofit websiteA Cause to Design was created to provide great local causes with one of the most crucial components to their initiative… a website!

A website is important to causes for many reasons. A major one being it creates a central place for all the information so that supporters and potential supporters have the opportunity to learn and interact. Some other reasons include providing a sense of legitimacy, collecting donations, lead generation, providing event information, progress updates and many more depending on the specific cause.

Currently, the voting phase has come to an end. Congratulations to everyone who participated. Check back often for updates on our winner and the progress of their website!

2013 Winner

Benjamin Lunak – Motivational Teacher

Benjamin Lunak is a CrossFitting Marine who is working on launching a motivational movement about “never giving up” – all the while living this motto by doing CrossFit with only one leg.

How the program works

Liquis Design develops a pro-bono website each year for a local cause as determined by public vote. The recipient can be a non-profit or just have a great cause that does GOOD in an area where there is a need. However, applicants who do not have non-profit status are at the discretion of Liquis Design.

The website build will be created using our small business and nonprofit website program, with the goal to develop a website that will serve as a significant marketing and awareness component for the cause.

The recipient’s site will be launched by December 31st as a sentiment of the difference that cause will make in the year ahead aided by the new website and goals attached to it.
