Final Thoughts

While we all know that churches and nonprofits in general rely on donations to stay afloat it is highly suggested to not skip out on a premium, versatile theme with excellent support since now more than ever the need to have a functioning service is evident.

Free themes get the job done especially with the help of third party plugins and a skilled developer but as evidenced by the low number of free themes suggested here is it better to go with a safe option.

All of the above mentioned are worthy contenders in this list and offer something unique either in terms of features or visuals but what your decision usually should come down to is the degree of support offered.

We hope our list of premium WordPress magazine themes helped you find one that will work great for you and your website.
