"Digital Divide" in nonprofit websites

As someone interested in working on nonprofit websites, I have visited many different organizations/associations websites. I realized recently that there is a "digital divide" in nonprofit websites.

Many nonprofits have a website, but there are still many nonprofits that do not have a web presence. I have come up with 4 groups to describe the gap in nonprofit websites.

1) This group has had a website for years. They are up to date with the internet and knows how they can use their website effectively.

2) This group has a website, but there is still room for improvement. They have an updated website, but they are ready to redesign their site and add more features to it.

3) This group has a website but it lacks usability and has not been updated in years.

4) This group does not have a website. They do not know how a website can help their organization.
