18 Beautiful WordPress Themes For Charities, Churches and Non-Profits

18 Beautiful WordPress Themes For Charities, Churches and Non-Profits

As more and more developers move into creating websites for niche industries, charities, churches and non-profits are reaping the benefits.

While these loosely connected groups could use any old theme to establish and maintain their online presence, they have special needs most themes don’t provide. Developers who are catering to this group have realized this and have begun offering a common set of features: custom post types for events and sermons, support for fundraising, widgets for donations and video support for sermons, among other things.

These features don’t come cheap or free. The themes in this collection all range in price from $45 to $63. I chose not to feature any free themes because of their lack of features.

In this post, we’ll look at some of the best premium themes designed for charities, churches and non-profit organizations.
