Arkansas Coalition for Excellence

The Client

Arkansas Coalition for Excellence (ACE) is the Arkansas' state association of nonprofit organizations and is Arkansas' representative in the National Council of Nonprofit Associations (NCNA). ACE works with nonprofits of every size and function with one goal: maximizing effectiveness so that every donated dollar results in greater impact.

The Challenge

Design a Web site and new logo that communicate ACE’s mission to help nonprofits maximize efficiency and use every donated dollar for greater impact; and provide ACE with online member-only tools to help increase membership.

The Solution

Softwyre designed a new logo that combines imagery of people and diamonds (referencing ACE’s Diamond Standards) – the lifeblood of the organization. To complement the clean logo design, Softwyre created an elegant Web design, and integrated it into a Content Management System (CMS) that ACE uses to keep its news and calendar information up-to-date.

Softwyre outfitted the site with a host of member-only features and non-profit resources, including grant information, start-up help, a member center, a job board, relevant public policy information, and news and events.
