MIGHTYminnow is passionate about making connections with outstanding people and organizations that have a proven track record of greatness in their fields. We are proud to be affiliated with the following organizations:


Compasspoint Nonprofit Services

Our founder, Kristin Long, taught website maintainers, accidental webbies, and aspiring web developers in Compasspoint’s technology training lab for TEN years. With the closing of Compasspoint’s lab in Summer, 2012, that relationship continues with discounts for MIGHTYminnow’s nonprofit students and special deals for Compasspoint clients. If you are a 501c3 and you are not familiar with CompassPoint, you are missing out on some fantastic resources. Please visit their website – and please consider signing up for their newsletter for ongoing updates.

Oakland GrownOakland Grown

MIGHTYminnow is proud to be Oakland Grown. Oakland Grown is a program of the Sustainable Business Alliance. The Oakland Grown program is a collection of local business owners, artists, and engaged citizens committed to strengthening Oakland’s local economy, social well being, and unique sense of place.


Hosting – WPEngine or Siteground

MIGHTYminnow uses and recommends Siteground & WP Engine. Siteground is less expensive but WP Engine has more helpful support for WordPress sites in specific. We also like WebFaction, but that is mostly for developers.

Site Backup

blogVaultblogVault offers great backup, restore and migration capabilities to your WordPress based site. Their customer service is TOP NOTCH and the service is a great value. We highly recommend blogVault (even if your site is more than a blog)!

Genesis Framework

MIGHTYminnow has evaluated many approaches to building WordPress sites and have found that using the Genesis Framework is most efficient. We love it and think you will too!
