3 Minute Charity Offers a One-Stop-Shop of Simple & Powerful Website Tools
In their pitch to potential customers 3 Minute Charity said We're not going to go away! Our website and donor software product is build on very popular open source software packages, backed by a community of thousands of users, testers and developers. Unfortunately sometime after 2012 this site's domain expired and they did disappear.
Their boast of "Create a Website online in 3 Minutes!" seemed a bit unrealistic. Probably more that a bit. I am part of a team that handles custom application development for companies requiring specialized, industry-specific needs that are usually outside the scope of the commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) programs many companies end up purchasing. When a business utilizes COTS software, they’re at now at the whim of the company that built the software. I always shudder when I imagine the disruptions that could occur if the company's COTS software were discontinued? Most likely they would be required to purchase some unexpected expensive upgrades, have to get a whole new COTS program, or in the worst scenario, go out of business. The custom business and web application development that we do for clients is actually owned by them. They can keep the programs and tools as long as they like. Custom software development alleviates concerns that the everyday programs a company relies on will suddenly not be available anymore. Of course most small non profits couldn't afford the specialized programing I do. However, I would hope that they consider something more robust than a CMS that says they could build their website in 3 minutes.
However, when I saw that their domain was once again available I decided to buy it with the the goal of recreating the content from its archived pages. 3 Minute Charity was a great idea and by resurrecting the site I am hoping someone else will be inspired to create software or a CMS that is also designed specifically for non-profits, membership and advocacy organizations.
