The OpenAid logo


OpenAid is a free and open source website starter kit designed to help cause-driven organizations create feature-rich websites, effectively promoting their work and mobilizing their supporters.


OpenAid provides a modern 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:

  • Author and Staff Profiles
  • Image Galleries
  • Mapping
  • Multi-Author Blog
  • News
  • Partner profiles
  • Resource Library
  • Responsive Theme

The platform also includes blocks for social media links, a pre-configured WYSIWYG editor, 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.
