Washington DC web development company specializing in nonprofit organizations and member associations

WASHINGTON, DC – Since relocating from California to Washington DC in 2010, inQbation has established itself as one of the leading web design and development agencies in DC that specialize in the needs of nonprofit organizations (NPOs), nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and member associations.

In the beginning, we served only start-ups – hence the name, inQbation – because we helped entrepreneurs incubate ideas and turn those ideas into successful companies.  Knowing that most bootstrapping entrepreneurs were on extremely tight budgets, we learned how to leverage open source technology – such as Drupal, WordPress, PHP, Python, Ruby on Rails – to stretch the dollar and deliver more value.

Turns out that NPOs, NGOs, and member associations are no different.  Everybody is on a budget.  Even billionaires have budgets.  So, we focus on delivering maximum value on limited budgets regardless of whether that budget is $10,000 or $100,000 or a million dollars.  We strive to be excellent stewards of the donor funds entrusted to us.

The other ways we work to help nonprofits is through automation and leveraging technology to enable limited staffs to do more work with fewer people.  How do we do that?  By understanding exactly how nonprofit and member association staff spend their time.

If we discover that half of your day is spent answering the same types of questions over and over and the answers to those questions exist somewhere in a database or website, then we will take active steps to make this information available online and provide clear calls to action to let people know where this information exists and how to access it.

By empowering members and web visitors to serve themselves, to get answers to information any time of day or night, this enables people to get the answers they need without interrupting staff.  This, in turn, frees up staff to use their brains on real knowledge work rather than tedious, redundant, administrative work.

If you are part of a nonprofit organization, nongovernmental organization, or member association and are struggling with these same types of issues – give us a call and allow us to discover ways to help you do more with less.
