Thanks to the generous donors of the Boys and Girls Club and Child Resource and Referral of Rochester Minnesota they opened “The Place for Everyone”. In celebration, a custom Rail Wall System donor recognition wall was created to greet visitors. The 8 foot donor wall is custom designed to combine both places and is reflected in the photos and changeable naming panels. The bright colors and happy children is a visual reflection of the mission and vision of the new facility.
Three years in the making, conversations began early to make sure space was left available for the donor wall and the many generous donors. The wall was painted as Presentations recommended to optimize the visual effect of the donor wall and making sure the donors get noticed and encourage more donations.
The donor wall reflects the vibrant energy of “The Place” and gives life to their overall continued success.
The Ark, a Jewish outreach center in Chicago, was in need of a durable way to greet visitors and post events, schedules and honor their many donors. The perfect solution was a combination donor wall that contains both updateable panels and a digital donor wall that is updated on a daily basis. Located immediately inside the front door and next to the cafeteria, the new donor wall brightens the space and easily directs visitors to the ongoing activities of The Ark.
The first design element that was addressed, was the need for the touchscreen monitor to be housed in a sturdy case. Once that was accomplished, donor name sections were added on either side of the monitor with panels that are easily updated. To complete the design aluminum trim was added to the sides and corners of each section for a clean and durable look.
For fun, a dimensional wordle was created in the shape of The Ark logo and attached to the front of the display.
The completed project is a beautiful, durable donor display that greets visitors with daily events and celebrates the many, generous donors.
With decades of donor participation and giving campaigns the original St. Luke’s Hospital marble donor wall became a challenge to keep updated and was not relevant to the needs of today’s different types of donations. St. Luke’s Hospital Foundation wanted a donor wall that was easy to update, incorporated all of the different campaigns and encouraged new donations.
To begin, a new location by an entrance was recommended and chosen to catch the attention of more visitors. Second, a design that incorporates all of the different campaigns and is easy to update, and allows for visitor information. The final design is a spectacular 25 foot lit wall has over 30000 color changing LED lights, full color prints relevant to donors, a digital touchscreen that can be updated from a secure wireless connection and glass donor blocks and panels that are updateable.
Seeing is believing, check out the online YouTube Video of the wall changing colors and the digital interactive signage.
The St. Luke’s donor wall and Presentations were featured in the June 2012 issue of Healthcare AV Magazine. To get more insider information on this donor wall, take a look at the ARTICLE!
When a unique and artistic donor recognition wall was needed for the newly constructed, state of the art, Hospice Inpatient Unit at St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, looked to Presentations to deliver another one of a kind donor wall that incorporated their vision for the space. St. Luke’s Hospital and Presentations have a trusted relationship and worked seamlessly together to bring to life the artful vision of this magical donor recognition wall.
At first glance, you’re drawn into the beauty of the donor wall by the soothing earth tones of the individually cut donor leaves, and the whimsy of the etched swirling branches that seem to carry the donor leaves and flow through the air into the serene forest.
Presentations knew this donor wall needed to not only fit the space, which is at the entrance to the hospice unit, and a gathering area for visitors and families, but it also needed to tie into and add an artistic tone. It was only fitting, that the theme of the donor recognition wall, and inpatient hospice unit, embrace the seasons of life and change.
This intriguing donor recognition wall is made of translucent photo panels. Etched line art was added to each panel for a whimsical feeling and wood was used to tie it all together. Presentations went a step further and carried these materials throughout the hospice unit with nearly 20 room naming signs made of these same materials.
St. Luke’s is extremely pleased with everything Presentations accomplished. Going above and beyond and providing a donor recognition wall that is not only a piece of art that speaks to people, but is functional and inspiring to future donors.
The Midwest Palliative & Hospice CareCenter is committed to providing excellent hospice and palliative care, as well as grief counseling and support. The CareCenter came to Presentations looking for a way to thank their donors who show just as much commitment to their vision. A great way to do this is with donor walls.
The Midwest Palliative & Hospice CareCenter was inspired by the John XXII Catholic Church donor recognition wall that Presentations had created previously. Starting with the existing design Presentations manipulated it slightly to better fit the CareCenter and the available space. The entrance where the donor wall hangs has a pillar that obstructs the view of the wall, with this in mind, the wall is designed around the pillar. Five giving levels are denoted through the five different leaf colors and to match the door and window trim, aluminum waves were added to frame and finish the piece.
In addition, the Midwest Palliative & Hospice CareCenter wanted a way for donors to easily identify their leaf. To assist in this process Presentations created a name legend that utilizes a numbered leaf system and a corresponding map.
Since opening their new facilities, Midwest Palliative & Hospice CareCenter has added a number of new donors to the wall. For more information and pictures of the new facilities visit them on Facebook.
