We are excited to share a special wall of honor that we had the pleasure to design for the Catholic Medical Association in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania.
Wall of Honor Project
Our project was to develop a Wall of Honor design that would recognize contributions to the CMA’s various appeals, the capital campaign for their new facility, including a Chapel, annual fund, and Legacy giving. Our initial discussions had various donation plaques throughout their new facilities. After a visit and consultation, our recommendation was to create a single display that would effectively acknowledge donors in a distinctive cohesive manner.
Wall of Honor Description
Centrally locating the recognition gave visibility to all the donors and offered opportunity to raise awareness of visitors to the various appeals of the Catholic Medical Association. Our design complimented the décor of the new offices with a classic style. Using a three-panel approach that equally represents the type of donors. Individually mounted brushed aluminum plates honor donors and can be easily removed and updated. Images of Catholic Medical Association logo, events and donors add personality and warmth to the display for a timeless look.
We look forward to learning of the continued success of the Catholic Medical Association, it is our privilege to be of service to their mission.
“It was a pleasure working with Donna and the entire B&D Team to conceptualize a unique benefactor tribute wall that signified the gratitude and high regard we have for all our donors, and still worked within our budget. When we had our first open house after the installation of the benefactor wall, many members commented on that while they were not looking for recognition, they were humbled and appreciative of the recognition and hope it will inspire others to step forward as well.”
