It has become more apparent in the digital age for any company or organization must have a web presence. Some non-profit 501 entities feel their organization is too small, lacks funding, or is not significant enough to have or even need a website. The primary problem of not having a website is that your message is very limited to an offline audience and in many cases expensive methods of advertising.
