Many non-profits operate on shoe-string budgets for their websites. With this in mind, I challenged myself to create a flexible non-profit website template that would meet basic needs at the lowest possible cost.
Basic needs are defined as:
The results? A solution with $0-$4** monthly costs except for PayPal's donation & payment processing fee %. The solution makes generous use of "freemium" services which do not have fees until you have a larger audience (>100 donors + registering members per month) or additional functionality needs.
** Updated 3/20/2017 after clarifying the need to have Powr's Form Builder Premium version in order to redirect users back to your site after a PayPal transaction.

Here is the Tech Behind The Scenes:
Note: I researched several other payment, donation platforms, and form builders. There are many great options, but few offer free plans - in fact, most charge $30/month and/or 5-7% in processing fees - or the products are difficult to customize without coding.
Any free essentials or non-profits basic needs that I missed? Please comment/suggest below and share if you find this to be helpful. Thank you!
