Before I write the first tag there are questions that I don't even know to ask yet. Looking over some gov pages I would assume that there is a registration required for the non-profit. Looking over the mission statement of this organization, I can see that dollars are destined to be spent out of this country (US), and that leads me to at least ponder what Federal requirements might exist. Obviously the last thing I want is to be explaining how I came to be a part of some terrorist cell..
Clearly there are things that I can discover from my client, but I would like to be satisfied that the information is valid.
Have you built a non-profit site? What experience can you share?
Are there known 'rules' (for lack of a better term) for this kind of site?
Did I like that experience: NO! Mostly for needing to beg for me fees and content
I am on that road again but for a Nationwide well known org
Then at this level itís a pleasure and a nice experience
You could Google the org and see what there is on the web about the organization.
As far as guidelines or other information, that would depend on what type of organization or what their mission is.
I run a local bike/pedestrian coalition website, we will be a 501(c)3, although we have yet to finish getting the paperwork out.. we have the help of a lawyer to do the work pro bono so it makes it easier.
I am not sure about the other non-US funding and such, since we are a local org...
anyway, good luck with it.
Site A always pays its bills on time, but I end up working for a committee. Quite frustrating when they don't get on the same sheet of music. I almost fired this client this year, but they do always pay on time.
Site B thinks everything can be done for pennies. Always slow to pay. Always complains about about costs. Whenever I suggest they bid the work out, they come back (a sure sign I am not charging enough:)) Having a couple of links on this site (relatively high PR and good ranking in its niche) make it worthwhile - since I always do get my money...eventually.
