Every dollar we spend is a vote for the companies we give it to. 

We need to ask ourselves "what are we voting for through the companies we choose to work with?"

About Us

WordPressforGood is a WordPress technical support collective committed to our ecological, financial and social responsibilities.

We work for and with our clients to provide straight-forward, no-nonsense technical support so that they can focus on the good they do through their business. We try to remember that underneath it all, we’re all human beings working with other human beings to make a difference both for each other and globally.

We have an expanding network of clients around the globe, focusing mainly on B-Corp certified companies but we also love to help entrepreneurs struggling with their technology.

We are currently in the process of applying for B-Corp certification ourselves.

WordPressforGood's Mission

WordPressforGood will succeed both locally and globally as a leading expert of technical support to globally conscious businesses. We will do this in the most sustainable way we can. We aim to change the view of technical support for ethical online businesses from a non-essential luxury to an affordable, must-have necessity.

The work we do every day comes in answer to the question "How can we remove another piece of the technical frustration from businesses who are trying to make the world a better place?"

Vision

We envision a world where everyone can build an ethical business they believe in without becoming mired in the technology used to run that business. 

Through continued experience and development, we will stay at the forefront of technology while adhering to the latest proven environmental practices, innovations and solutions to wisely protect and conserve the water we drink, the air we breathe and the earth in which we live.

Our History

We've evolved over the years from a lone Drupal development freelance agent into the WordPress full service trech support group we are today. Today, our clients benefit from our continued growth and expansion of services in almost all online-relevant technical areas.

We are proud to continue serving the people most dedicated to improving our world.

Our Core Values


It has to matter

Your time is precious

Your time here gets less every day. It's running out.

I believe that whatever you occupy that time with should matter.

That's why we help people who are making good use of their time

That's why we put our heart and soul into helping every client doing good in the world

I vote every day for issues I care about. Through the foods I buy, the people and businesses I give my precious and ever-decreasing time to. To the people and things I choose to spend my time on. Through the activities I think are important enough to spend my time on. To the businesses I'm trying to build. That's how I vote.

Our Corporate Responsibility

B Corporation

The rigorous certification process takes a holistic look at a company’s impact on its workers, customers, community, and environment. Certification as a B Corporation® demonstrates AET’s ongoing commitment to create more value than we consume and to fulfill our present needs within the carrying capacity of the planet, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs, in addition to focusing on the welfare of people working in our company and the broader communities in which we work.

CHANGE THIS for several years now, fundamental and critical questions have arisen within our team regarding the impact, role and responsibility of our activity on our societal, economic and natural environment. In particular, if every dollar our company spends is a vote for the companies we give it to, then what are we voting for through the companies we choose to serve?
