About Charity Websites
As a nonprofit organisation, your number one priority is connecting with people, helping them to understand your mission, and inspiring them into meaningful action.
A well-designed website is a crucial element of your campaign. It will:
- Tell your story
- Attract donations or volunteers, fundraise
- Engage and retain your supporters as well as attract new ones
- Foster community
I’ve worked with nonprofits for over ten years and understand your unique needs.
A website that’s user-friendly, easy to navigate, optimised for search engines and looks great!
I’m a WordPress expert with a wealth of knowledge and experience. There’s a reason WordPress is the world’s most popular content management system. It gives you a beautiful website that’s easy for your audience to find their way around, mobile-friendly, adaptable to a wide range of uses, secure, and simple to add regular content to. I’ll build your site using quality photography, SEO copywriting, and clean, optimised code with smart design architecture for achieving the best search rankings possible.
Technical support and training
I can train and support your volunteers and staff to update and manage your website. If you want to DIY sections of your site, or contribute to it yourself on an ongoing basis, I’ve got your back with technical support, personalised documentation, and video tutorials that you can refer to whenever you need.
Take advantage of WordPress’s compatibility with a huge range of third-party services. I can set you up with automatic newsletter signups, an events calendar that syncs with iCal, a simple and straightforward online donation tool, practical suggestions for volunteer involvement, and connections to your social media channels.
Ongoing support and backup
Protect your investment in your website. Kitchen Table Web Design offers discounts on website care plans to ensure your website is backed up daily, monitored and maintained. Your website will be in safe hands with daily cloud backups, 24/7 uptime monitoring, WordPress database optimisation, and spam and revision cleanups.
A range of options to suit your budget
I also offer consultant services in search engine optimization, email marketing, social media and other aspects of managing your online presence.
Why choose Kitchen Table Web Design for your charity?
I have been involved with nonprofits all my working life, both as a volunteer and a paid worker. Community building is important to me. I bring this passion to all my nonprofit projects.

Deacons of Aotearoa
From Reverend Anne Russell-Brighty
We are getting lots of compliments about the website.
I am glad that we have a website care plan so I am confident that the website is being well maintained. Also I can give you additional content to add to the site without any additional charges.
I love how you have made our course look on the website.
~ Reverend Anne Russell-Brighty, Deacons of Aotearoa, New Zealand.
Catholic Diocese of Auckland
From the Website Administrator
When I started looking for trainers on WordPress it was a very difficult task until I met with Tarnya. She was knowledgeable, professional and so easy to work with. I immediately felt very relaxed after meeting with her and new that the huge task in front of me was going to be a lot easier with her help and support.
She created great training videos, replied to my emails and phone calls really quickly, worked with our IT guys and myself in a professional manner. This has been 2-year partnership that has produced 60 new websites and there are more to come, so having Tarnya working with me makes my job a lot less stressful.
Thank you Tarnya for all that you have done throughout this process.
NZ Catholic - Magazine
NZ Catholic is a fortnightly newspaper that is distributed throughout New Zealand. They provide their content in the newspaper format and as an online newspaper magazine and through the website. The website needed an update with the following goals:
- The most important function for our newspaper website is clarity of information and readability - on all platforms.
- We need to include and improve our subscriber/donate panel
- We would want space for video embedding and a digital edition embed
- We want a design that offers white uncluttered backgrounds, simple navigation with clear subscriber buttons, clear side panels for advertising, social media links and quick links to stories or events.
We customised a theme to provide the structure and style required to meet the NZ Catholic's goals for the website. The website is fully responsive and secure. We improved the functionality around subscriptions. We continue to provide a website care plan for ongoing technical support. The day to day management of the website and new content is managed by NZ Catholic staff and writers.
Thanks so much getting this up and going so quickly - I realise there was a considerable amount of weekend time given up to get this live before the expiry of the old platform.
~ Anne Rose, Designer, NZ Catholic
