the physical and/or digital acknowledgement of a donor or supporter by an organization

FUNDING matters has the knowledge and experience to best assist with integrating recognition into your organization and its fundraising campaign. Recognition can take many forms including:

  • Interior and exterior signage
  • Legacy installation (e.g. sculpture, dedication wall)
  • Interactive recognition (e.g. recognition kios with touch screen)
  • Online recognition
  • Recognition marketing through social media, email, newsletters, mail-outs and print media

It is a myth that recognition should be an afterthought of a fundraising campaign. Successful recognition is the result of early planning by an organization. When implemented effectively, it can be used a resource and incentive for donors to support your organization throughout the life of a campaign.
