More and more nonprofit organizations are harnessing the advantages of WordPress by implementing it as the content management system for their websites. Because it is an open-source system, there are no licensing fees required for its use helping to keep costs for website development and maintenance low.

With tens of thousands of plug-ins available for WordPress, it is highly flexible and scalable in terms of what it can do. Need to set up a calendar or event reservation form? Easy. Want to accept donations on your website? Done. Want to add new content to your website but not pay a web developer to create the page each time? That is one of the key benefits of WordPress: you can easily update and create new content without knowing HTML or other advanced web programming languages. The administrative interface is user-friendly and extremely flexible.
