The Center for a Non Violent Community unveiled their new custom website this week at nonviolentcommunity.org. The local organization was the winner of an annual contest held by Laura Bowly Design. Each year, Bowly donates a custom content management system website to one local non-profit group, nominated by someone in their community who has been impacted by the work they do.
“I received an incredible selection of entries for the contest this year.” says Bowly, a former Tuolumne County resident. “The nomination letter I received on behalf of the Center For A Non Violent Community was particularly poignant and gave me a glimpse into the remarkable and selfless work that CNVC does in Tuolumne County.”
“As I learned from the nomination letter,” she continues, “Tuolumne County’s rate of domestic violence is ten percent higher than the state’s average … a sobering statistic and one that makes CNVC’s work even more relevant.”
The CNVC is thrilled with their new and improved online presence. “As a small non-profit organization in a rural community, our limited resources had, up until this point, only allowed us to put together a very simple website which lacked many features necessary for our agency,” says Willow Thorpe, CNVC Operations Director. “The new CNVC site is amazing! The color scheme ties in with our logo and all of the features on the site function flawlessly. Not only do we have a working donation link and a ‘Quick Escape’ button, we are also able to promote our events using the calendar and news sections, advertise our support groups, provide information and resources, and share awareness campaigns related to our mission.”
Previous winners of Bowly’s Free Website Contest include the Calaveras County Humane Society and Sonora’s Teenworks Youth Mentoring Program. “The contest has given me an opportunity to learn more about amazing non-profit organizations around the state,” reflects Bowly. “I’m so glad I can support their work by enabling them to expand their reach and provide valuable services to their communities.”
