Both Drupal and WordPress are open source content management systems, meaning that technically both are free to use.
Drupal is a wonderful, customizable content management system that 1000s of organizations use effectively and successfully. However, for organizations without IT-experts, specifically coding experts, Drupal tends to be more challenging to use. The learning curve is a bit steeper, and it can be more frustrating for a non-IT expert to use.
So, if like a lot of nonprofits, you have neither the IT-expert nor the financial resources to hire one, we recommend WordPress. It is an easy program to use, easy to modify, easy to make your own.
You can upload your own logo, change colors, add e-commerce, keep track of your donors. In short, there’s not much you can’t do with WordPress.
In addition, WordPress links easily to Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites, ensuring that your nonprofit gets the exposure it needs. And deserves.
