OpenAid is a turnkey website platform designed to help NGOs and other non-profit organizations create cost-effective program-focused websites quickly.


As a Features-based Drupal 7 distribution, OpenAid provides a basic responsive theme and commonly-needed functionality to allow organizations and programs to launch new sites without the need for extensive custom development. You can also use it as a starting point to build your own custom sites faster, borrowing from the theme and features provided by OpenAid to create your own.

The core features of OpenAid include:

  • Customizable home page with prominent image carousel and stream of recent updates
  • Multi-author blog
  • User profiles
  • Project profiles, including geographic and categorical meta data
  • Resource library with support for Apache Solr and faceted search
  • Partner profiles
  • Image galleries

The platform also includes blocks for social media links, a pre-configured WYSIWYG editor and CAPTCHA spam blocker, and other useful supporting features. OpenAid is mobile-friendly out of the box, using responsive design techniques to adapt the design seamlessly for mobile browsers.
