Nonprofit Design by CEDC

Drupal

DrupalWe use a number of open source solutions in our web design for our nonprofit partners. Drupal is a powerful, flexible, extensible and scalable content management system. It allows us to develop the site so that staff from our nonprofit partners can take control of the site, adding and editing content or managing members -- even if they don't have a lot of technical training. CEDC is an Organizational Member of the Drupal Association. See below for a sampling of some of the sites we've developed in Drupal.

SproutCreekFarm.org SproutCreekFarm.org

Sprout Creek Farm is a functioning educational farm that produces award-winning artisan cheeses in addition to its educational programming. We've recently worked with them to streamline their website and the way they manage donations, registrations, cheese sales, and contact data. We tried to provide an on-ramp to the life of the Farm as much as possible via a short background video on the homepage as well as by featuring their incredible library photos in the background on interior pages.

Religious Formation Conference (RFC) Website Religious Formation Conference (RFC) Website

We recently helped the Religious Formation Conference redesign and relaunch their website. They wanted a fresh design more in keeping with their branding and which was more vibrant and engaging. The site offers more value to their members through the members only area and will streamline their internal office procedures at the same time. The site is built in Drupal and will be fully integrated with CiviCRM for member management and donations in the coming months.

Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR.org) Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR.org)

LCWR was ready to move from the static HTML site that had been developed in-house to something that was easier to navigate and manage, with a focus on conveying a beautiful, professional, and vibrant mood. We kept some aspects from the original design for consistency of identity (such as the color scheme) and updated and revised the structure and design.

Network of Sacred Heart Schools (SOFIE.org) Network of Sacred Heart Schools (SOFIE.org)

SOFIE (Schools Online For Interactive Education) is the website of the Network of Sacred Heart Schools. It serves as an information point about the association of twenty-one Sacred Heart schools across the United States, including clickable maps and information about the schools, as well as frequently updated news and events.

Society of the Sacred Heart at the UN Society of the Sacred Heart at the UN

This site supports the Society of the Sacred Heart's NGO office at the United Nations. We've built it in Drupal, making it multilingual. The site is manually translated into three languages: English, French, and Spanish. (We also provide a simple link to Google Translate's attempt to render the page in other languages). We've provided three separate URLs for the site so that users can go directly to the language that they prefer:

AABMC.org AABMC.org

The African American Baptist Mission Collaboration seeks to help rebuild, revitalize and advocate for Haiti in wake of the January 2010 earthquake. Their site needed to reflect the style and colors of their logos, providing information about the three main prongs of their work: Projects, Service, and Advocacy. We built their site with Drupal, integrating it with CiviCRM so that all user interactions with the site (such as someone filling out the "Contact Us" form, making a donation, or signing up for a volunteer service opporunity) are fed into the CiviCRM database.

CEDC.org CEDC.org

We finally carved out the time to freshen the look and feel and rebuilt our site from the ground up.

We used Drupal for its extensibility and for the ability to cross-reference the type of design with the partner we worked with as well as any keywords we added for a design. Custom theming also allowed us to link the partner pages to a list of the other projects that we've worked on with them, and in the design pages, to automatically generate an image gallery based on the filepaths for graphics we've uploaded for the project.

Nacms.org Nacms.org

The good folks at the North American Center for Marianist Studies (NACMS) contacted us to ask for advice and help as they considered redesigning their website. The site was an extensive collection of static HTML pages and they were contemplating how best to convert this into a more manageable and user-friendly form.

Education For Justice Education For Justice

The Education For Justice project has an expansive membership-based website chock full of prepared resources related to Catholic Social Teaching for educators. In November of 2007 we helped them port their site over to Drupal from a proprietary CMS which was not user-friendly. Although they had great content, it was hard to organize it well in the restrictive and clunky system they were tied in to. Recently, we've given the site another major update.

NCPD.org NCPD.org

The National Catholic Partnership on Disability's new site recently went live. We developed it in Drupal and trained NCPD staff so that they can manage the site themselves. We had input from folks in their offices and on their board regarding accessibility preferences and ended up building two separate themes, one which included graphics and one which was a stripped down "text only" version.

RSCJ International RSCJ International

The static HTML site we had helped the Sisters of the Sacred Heart build years earlier had grown to such a point that we began looking for an easier way to manage the content. The site is largely translated into three languages (French, Spanish, and English) and so each update was requiring much more effort than was necessary.

CLINICLegal.org CLINICLegal.org

A site redesign and development in an open source CMS to make updating easier among the team of updaters, to make content more accessible to the public and to members, and to provide a more attractive face to the public. In addition, we helped them migrate from a variety of disparate systems towards a centralized CRM solution (CiviCRM) to manage memberships, events, donations and contact relationships.

COC.org COC.org

The Center of Concern (COC) recently partnered with us to refresh their website both visually (with an updated look and feel) as well as underneath the hood (with a more powerful content management system).
