Grace Church Websites provides free websites, hosting, and domain registration to churches and other nonprofit organizations. It was started in 2016 by Don Vaccaro and his pastor and friend Reverend Dr. Boise Kimber to help churches, especially urban churches and small churches with limited resources, and has extended to other nonprofits. As of November 2016, Grace Church Websites has launched over 600 free websites to churches and other nonprofit organizations.
We are providing free websites to churches because we love the local church. We believe that the local church is the hope of the world. The name was inspired by God’s grace, which is a free gift. God has given us the free gift of his love and salvation through Jesus Christ.

We are also inviting nonprofits to launch free websites from organizations including, but not limited to, local chapters of the National Action Network, Rainbow PUSH, and NAACP.
