2018 Best Annual Report Websites

10 Impactful Annual Report Websites

Last year, we showed you a great way to save time and money by letting your web team produce a website for your annual report. Online presentations are easy to deliver and easy to track, making them the perfect approach for conscientious organizations. 

This year, we wanted to revisit that notion with a fresh dose of inspiration. From standout styles to user-friendly features, these annual reports are raising the bar for everyone:

1. Tenderlion Neighborhood Development

Scroll through this vibrant report and you’ll find a clever way to display a lot of (pertinent) information. Donor lists are accessed by selecting a contribution level and navigating side-to-side, rather than appearing as one giant wall of text.

2.  Lemonly

Not only did this organization have someone sing their statistics, they had a fun interactive activity at the end, too.

3.  Fund Good Jobs

Punchy colors and animations really drive the statistics home here.

5.  Habitat DC

What makes this one unique is its layout. Each section has its own page, which can be reached by top navigation or bottom buttons.

5.  Girls Who Code (2016)

6.  9/11 Memorial & Museum

According to the text, “Visitors to the Museum are encouraged to leave a message on digital screens near a piece of World Trade Center steel.” Here, some of those impressions have been incorporated into the design and are displayed on a loop.
