Bricks Without Straw, a local Internet marketing and website design company, will again offer free Web design services to the state’s nonprofit community.

Company president Jamie Summers-Brown said his business has provided volunteer design and consulting services to several organizations over the past 10 years, including the Special Olympics and Roark-Sullivan Lifeway Center. He said those experiences helped prompt him to branch out and help more nonprofits.

“We felt there was a need for this type of service because there were a lot of smaller organizations that people don’t really know about,” he said. 

The Frank Brown Community Partnership, established last year, is named for his grandfather, a World War II veteran who volunteered for various veterans groups over the years. The program has already benefited the Childhood Language Center and Bob Burdette Center After School Program.

Summers-Brown said in the digital age, nonprofits need to have a Web presence and ability to accept online payments to help raise awareness and funds. He described the partnership as his company doing the “heavy lifting” when it comes to setting up the websites, which frees up the nonprofit managers to focus on the day-to-day aspects of their jobs that they do best.

Services include either initial website design and development, or redevelopment of an existing brand and website. One applicant per year will be selected through the program.

Qualifying nonprofits must be approved by the state and have offices or headquarters in the state. Applications can be found online at www.BricksWithoutStraw.com and must be received no later than Dec. 31.

For more information, call Summers-Brown at 304-807-9674.
