Why Provide a Free Website to a Nonprofit?
Beanstalk Web Solutions is committed to giving back to our community and support organizations working to make St. Louis and the surrounding areas a better place to live, learn, and grow.
Previously, Beanstalk has provided hands on education, volunteering and discounted services for non profits. Through these services this contest has become a natural progression of our own mission to help others.
How Can I Nominate My Favorite Nonprofit for a New Website?
Incredible organizations throughout the region are making big things happen, but do not have the budget or extra resources available to design and develop a custom website.
While many nonprofits work around the clock to help change the world, their lack of online presence can directly impact public awareness of their mission and services.
Beanstalk Web Solutions is committed to helping nonprofit organizations develop their digital footprint in order to spread their message, secure funding, and engage more potential volunteers. In addition to this latest Free Custom Website Contest, we actively pursue these efforts daily with our 15% discount for qualifying nonprofits on most of our products and services.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO WIN.
PURCHASE OR PRIOR RELATIONSHIP WITH Beanstalk Web Solutions WILL NOT INCREASE THE LIKELIHOOD OF WINNING.
Fill out the form above with your contact information, name and contact information for the organization you are nominating, and a short (300 words) essay about how the organization helps your community/makes a difference in the world, and why you think they deserve a new website.
Applications must be submitted via the form above; emailed or mailed entries will be discarded. Entries must be received by Friday, August 31, 2018 at 11:55 PM CST to be selected for the second round of the contest.
Organizations are allowed to nominate themselves.
To be eligible to win, organizations must be based in the Greater St. Louis area and must have 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. Organizations must offer worthwhile opportunities for service, volunteering, or learning on a community level; political candidates, government agencies, and organizations whose sole or primary purpose is to promote specific religious beliefs are not eligible.
Organizations should have a non-discrimination policy and should not engage in discrimination based upon race, color, religion, creed, national origin, ancestry, disability, gender, sexual orientation, age, or any other characteristic protected by law.
Organization may have an existing website that is in need of a complete redesign, so long as that is noted on the application form.
Following receipt of application, Beanstalk Web Solutions will verify the organization’s nonprofit status, that the organization is interested in winning a new website from Beanstalk Web Solutions, and that the organization meets all other criteria listed above. Beanstalk Web Solutions reserves the right to exclude an organization from the contest at any time.
After application review, logo/images for each eligible organization will be uploaded to Beanstalk Web Solutions' Facebook page along with the applicant’s essay as a Facebook post. Organizations and applicants will be notified of their eligibility status and provided a link to their contest post on Facebook.
From the time of upload until Sunday, September 30, 2018 at 11:55 PM CST, individuals will be able to vote for the winning organization by sharing the post uploaded to the Beanstalk Web Solutions Facebook page.
