Digital Donor Walls

As we move further into the 21st century the demand for digital signage is increasing, if not expected. Directories, bulletin boards, and even donor walls are going digital and for good reason: they’re with the times, they’re easier to update and they’re much more legible.

Digital Donor Walls
Check Circle 1

Traditional donor walls are quickly becoming relics of the past. You can see the aging process take its toll when walking by outdated donor walls: rows of unpolished brass nameplates where you can no longer make out the donor names. If you want to stay ahead of the times, then it’s time to go digital.


Why go digital?

Digital donor walls have numerous advantages over traditional donor walls. There’s more to going digital than simply losing the metal polish. Let’s go over some of the benefits below.

Digital Directories Easy to Use

Easy To Design

Digital donor walls are easy to design because you can simply pick a template you like and enter in donor names. Many digital donor wall templates allow you to insert your school or organization logo as well. By using pre-made templates, you save hours of tedious design work.

One area where traditional donor walls suffer is the difficulty that comes with trying to display photographs or headshots of actual donors. You either have to organize a group photoshoot and manually insert the donors’ photos on your donor wall or stick to names only. With a digital donor wall, you can upload digital photographs or headshots of your wonderful donors right into your template. There’s no need to worry about photographs fading, getting torn, or being removed either.

Better Legibility

Better Legibility

What’s the most important part of installing a donor wall? Making sure people can actually read donor names! If you look at most non-digital donor walls the donor names are embossed on a small brass or metallic nameplate in a tiny, illegible font. In order to truly celebrate your donors, it’s best to put their name in big, bold, clear type so everyone knows they’ve contributed to the success of your school or organization.

Digital solves this problem. With a digital donor wall, you can adjust the font size and display contrast. You can try multiple designs and iterate until you get it just right.

Easy to Update Digital Signage

Easy To Update

This is the benefit that you don’t realize how useful it is until it’s time to make changes to your donor wall. In the past, to change or update a donor wall either requires replacing the donor wall entirely or painstakingly removing old donor names and inserting new donor names.

Really old donor walls require you to remove names and metal nameplates, which effectively means you must have an on-site donor wall artisan on staff. Other donor walls may have been custom built and require the builder to come out to make changes.

Digital solves all of these costs and problems. Simply access your digital signage account, select the template you wish to update, make the change and publish. It’s that easy and can be done in seconds. Best of all it can be done from your home office!

Broadcast Your Donor Wall

Broadcast Your Donor Wall To Other Digital Signs

If you have a network of digital signage around your school or organization, you can broadcast your donor wall to multiple locations. You can either have several displays dedicated to displaying your donor wall 24/7, or you can have your donor wall rotate through other signage templates throughout the day.

Change The Design Digital Signage

Change The Design To Match The Season, Holiday Or Event

Another great benefit of digital donor walls is that you can use different themed templates for different seasons, holidays or events. Whether you want to spruce up your donor wall for New Years or make it work for the day of the big game, digital has you covered!

Reduce Workplace Injuries Digital Signage

Reduce Workplace Injuries

Another benefit is that digital signage reduces workplace injuries and missed days. There’s no need for facilities or on-site technicians to physically go to the donor wall to make changes. In some cases, your donor wall may require a ladder to access it or require technicians to bend or kneel. All of these high-injury rate situations are reduced when you go digital.

Digital Donor Walls For K-12 Schools

Who doesn’t appreciate donors that help their local K-12 school? Whether it’s from individual contributors to organizations, donations are incredibly helpful in giving schools the boost they need to keep them well supplied and running smoothly.

Great For Campus Notifications

Rise Vision has a strong background in K-12 digital signage. You’ll find that our digital signage content management system will work well with all your needs pertaining to campus notifications, emergency alerts, and bulletin board information. All our templates can be programmed to display at any time intervals of your choosing, on multiple displays and emergency notifications can be pushed out at a moment’s notice.

Digital Donor Walls For Colleges And Universities

Without donors, many colleges and universities would lack the funding they need to build on-campus facilities, sports complexes, and dormitories. Every college and university wants to display their donor list and honor what they’ve done for the school community. What better way to do this, than with digital donor walls.

Multiple Locations Around Campus

One of the big advantages of going digital is that multiple donor walls can be displayed around campus and all controlled from one digital signage account. This reduces the need to update multiple donor walls around campus. Additionally, other digital signage displays can also serve as donor walls or partition the signage feed to display a donor wall on a rotating schedule.

Digital Donor Walls For Hospitals And Medical Centers

Similar to colleges and universities, donors are hugely important to hospital operations and expansion. Their donations help keep patient costs down and improve the patient experience. Celebrating these amazing people is a must for any hospital or medical center.

Promote Blood Donation In Your Hospital

Rise Vision digital signage allows you to promote another important form of donor messaging: blood donation. Many blood banks are in short supply. What better way to help out than by promoting a Red Cross donor month message. We’re always around the corner from another natural disaster - so let’s all help out and spread the word.

Rise Vision provides a versatile digital signage content management system that allows you to rotate both forms of donation messaging on the same display or throughout multiple displays at your hospital or medical center.
