Donor recognition signs don’t have to be plaques and lists of names that look more like tombstones than a celebration of giving. Donor walls made up of engraved blocks and printed lists are the most common and easiest to build, but do they really represent all the hard work and effort that went into your giving campaigns? Donor walls should not be an after thought, but a part of your campaign budget. Donor walls should catch attention and engage people to give. Donor walls are a great opportunity to express your vision and mission through visual artwork and promote your campaigns. Donor walls with lists can be special just by adding personal photos. Your donors want to feel special and you have an obligation to make that happen.
How to begin:
- Look at a companies portfolio
- Interview former clients
- Interview the company
Find a company you are comfortable in working with and tell them what you are envisioning. Any company that is willing to give away their designs to get the build, is going to give you a stock design that is off the shelf. If you want something original, you will pay for design and in the end get something you can be proud of and is original to you. You probably think, it is going to cost a lot more, but when you compare prices, you will be surprised. Donor walls don’t have to be boring once you see them as artwork. Presentations custom designs and builds every display with an artistic eye and quality engineering. We consider the space, architecture and the purpose of the client and the campaign. Sometimes we recommend painting the wall or design custom wallpaper to be background for the donor wall. Presentations donor walls are not cookie-cutter versions of the same thing over and over, but special for you.
