How do you thank people for making generous donations to your organization, in a way that maximizes space and optimizes creativity?
We’ve been asked this question many times before and have created a dynamic, interactive donor wall that provides an exciting solution. Visitors are immediately drawn to the dynamic moving photos and can use the touch screen features to expand upon the information that is linked to a photo or a name. Who are these people who donated their time and money? What inspired them to donate? Information is one thing, but reading about a donor’s story truly makes it a special place. To capitalize on this feature, we’ve included video clips so people can see donors give personal messages in a way that is truly inspiring. If a visitor is really motivated, the payment capture software included in the design can make a donation possible, right on the spot. So now your video donor wall has become a tool that can be used to show both appreciation and increase fundraising amounts – a pretty good return on investment, by most people’s standards.
In the video below, you’ll see our latest rendition of a video donor wall that spans across seven displays along the wall. When people touch the screen, pop up windows provide instant details about each donor and how much they’ve contributed.
With the advances being made in technology today, it seems like anything is possible. Many state-of-the-art facilities are using motion detection software, like the University of California, San Francisco. We can also help you extend your gratitude to outside the donor community. Many non-profits, for example, are taking the opportunity to single out volunteers, staff members and even medical personnel, as key components to the wonderful work that is being done on a day-to-day basis. Local events are highlighted and historical moments are shared to strengthen the bond between the organization and community in ways that surpass traditional methods of communication. Some hospitals are using video to include thank-you messages from patients – what a great way to show appreciation to everyone who made their hospital stay possible. These messages can easily be linked to social media with a simple click of a button.
We’re continuing to evolve our video donor wall in ways that make using the technology as easy as possible. Simply insert all of your data into a spreadsheet (or database of your choice) and it will automatically upload on to the video wall within 30 seconds. In just a few steps, you’re all set up and ready to go live.
In our next release, we’re designing the video donor walls so that visitors can provide comments or share likes on social media as another way to show their appreciation and thanks. This will make it a more meaningful tribute that will last for generations to come.
