donor walls


Donor walls are a powerful way to acknowledge the generosity of individuals, corporations, and organisations that contribute to the success of non-profit entities. In the UK, these signs have become an integral part of fundraising strategies, serving as a constant reminder of the impact of generosity.

Donor wall signage serves multiple purposes. Firstly, it’s a public acknowledgement of the kindness of donors. It’s a way to say, “thank you” and show appreciation for their contributions. Secondly, it can inspire others to give. When people see the names of donors, they may feel motivated to contribute and have their name added to the wall.

designing your signage

The design of donor wall signage in the UK varies greatly, depending on the organisation and the space available. Some opt for a traditional plaque, while others go for more creative displays incorporating lots of colour and bespoke materials. Regardless of the design, it’s crucial that the signage aligns with the organisation’s brand and mission.

The design and upkeep of your donor wall signage is just as important as the act of recognising your donors. Make it a point to keep your signage up-to-date and reflective of your organisation’s gratitude and respect for its benefactors.

updating donor walls

One of the challenges with this type of signage is keeping it up to date. As new donations come in, the signage needs to be updated. Some organisations solve this by using digital displays, which can be easily updated. Others use modular designs, where new names can be added without disrupting the existing layout. The coloured tiles shown in the images above are one excellent example of a donor wall which can be updated. We manufactured and installed this removable tile system for The University of Glasgow.

Donor wall signage is more than just a list of names. It’s a testament to the power of generosity and the impact it can have on an organisation and its mission. These signs are a common sight in museums, hospitals, universities, and other public buildings, serving as a reminder of the importance of giving back to the community.

As a signage consultancy we can help you achieve truly bespoke signage by bridging the gap between your signage needs, technicalities of the signage and the options available to you.
