WHAT IS A DONOR RECOGNITION WALL?
A donor recognition wall is a wall that displays the names of all the donors who participated in a particular campaign. The wall can take many creative forms depending on the campaign. Donor recognition walls can display a lot of names, so they are most often installed after a large capital campaign. Walls are usually permanent installations, though digital walls can be updated often.
WHAT IS A DONOR RECOGNITION SIGN?
Similarly to a donor recognition wall, a donor recognition sign often lists the names of donors who contributed to a particular campaign. A sign is usually portable, printed on a plastic or vinyl banner instead of metal or brick. As such, donor recognition signs are better choices for charity walks and other off-site or outdoor sponsored events as opposed to building campaigns.
WHAT IS A DONOR RECOGNITION PLAQUE?
When an individual, organization, or small group of individuals are the sole or major donors to a particular campaign, they could be honored with a donor recognition plaque. Plaques are often posted outside doors in buildings that a major contribution helped build. Donors could also take their plaques home with them if you don’t have anywhere permanent to house them.
