The Digital Agency for Nonprofit Organisations
Liquid Light is an award winning web design agency and partner for non-governmental organisations (NGOs), nonprofit organisations (NFPs) and foundations.
Nonprofit organisations and charities play an essential role in both society and the world around us – these are the organisations that help shape a better place for us all to live in, and we are proud and dedicated to helping these organisations achieve their mission and mandate.
Over the last 25 years, Liquid Light has developed significant experience and specialism, working with some of the world's biggest NGOs and nonprofit organisations; so if your existing website is no longer fit for purpose and needs redesigning, if your CMS is restricting your ability to manage your website content, if you have a new project or initiative, or if your current agency is not supporting you appropriately – then we'd love to talk to you.
We understand the unique needs and challenges faced by NGOs and NFPs
Whilst many agencies can design and build a website for a commercial product or service, nonprofit organisations and NGOs operate in a very different space, embodying more complex missions and mandates. Our experience of working with a wide range of nonprofit organisations, charities and NGOs ensures we understand the issues and challenges you face.
Why choose Liquid Light as your digital partner:
- Experienced in multi-stakeholder environments - We understand that designing websites and campaigns for NGOs and nonprofit organisations differ from commercial projects, as you often have a diverse spectrum of stakeholders ranging from individual beneficiaries to high level government officials; each with very different needs and objectives.
- Understand online advocacy and engagement - Advocacy-focused organisations require a more subtle and nuanced approach, where taking the time to consider the different stakeholder groups, their needs and how best to engage is critical to ensuring that your website appropriately engages with your visitors.
- Communicating more effectively - Whilst an organisation will have experts and specialists who have deep institutional and sectoral knowledge, refining this into effective externally focused communications can be a real challenge.
- Measuring and proving effectiveness and success - Showing your results and achievements is key for you and your stakeholders, yet not always easy to demonstrate and quantify on your website, as this can often be characterised by collaborations with others, more abstract statistics, and effects spread over long time scales or large geographic areas.
- Political and sensitive environments - Whilst a mission or mandate may be clear and concise, we understand and are experienced in managing and negotiating the need for sensitivity in relation to partners, donors, hierarchies and international politics that often make these projects more challenging.
- Engaging locally and internationally - Whilst a website can communicate with anyone on the internet, the needs of local communities can be very different from global messaging, and the need for multilingual capabilities are obviously important but create their own challenges.
- Need for powerful, yet cost effective CMS - Many organisations are mired by proprietary, or under powered, or inappropriate, or costly or poorly implemented CMS’s, reducing their ability to manage their website and content.
- Digital expertise and support - Whilst organisations can be full of experts (in their field) they can struggle to build and retain web design and digital expertise, Liquid Light has chosen to become a specialist partner adding this capability into nonprofit organisations.
Our specialism and experience in working with nonprofits and non government organisations combined with our passion for working within the social and economic development sector makes Liquid Light a perfect partner for your organisation.

Liquid Light were fantastic from start to finish. They guided us throughout the process and ensured all our key objectives for the site were exceeded. We were absolutely delighted with the end product. We would gladly work with them again and would readily recommend them to others. Thank you Liquid Light!
As a partnership of over 50 developing countries, development agencies and UN organizations, the new WHO IHP+ website had to satisfy many different criteria.

... we needed a company that had international experience, a fresh vision and a comprehensive team. We went through a very creative and constructive period with Liquid Light in developing our new website which is now fully active and has been well received by all our stakeholders … The Liquid Light team are creative, enthusiastic and able to deliver results.
When we moved to Liquid Light we had been badly burnt by our last web developers. The team at Liquid were able to offer short term solutions to undo the worst of the damage and a longer term plan to get us the number and type of visitors we needed. Since then we have seen our profile go from strength-to strength!
