New Monterey Display Celebrates International Success

The Monterey Institute of International Studies (MIIS), a graduate school of Middlebury College, is a dynamic organization that annually produces graduates who go on to be leaders in all areas of business and commerce, working for some of the world’s largest and most successful corporations.

Recently, MIIS decided to move ahead with the development of a comprehensive recognition display that would serve multiple purposes. The display, which would integrate an architecturally designed donor wall with an interactive multimedia presentation, is an innovative blend of technology and craftsmanship that is helping MIIS share its story and achievements with visitors around the world.

According to Kathryn Ann Joyce, Director of Corporate & Foundation Relations at MIIS,  the area where the display is situated used to be dead space but is now always busy with people. “The wall has brought that building to life,” says Joyce. “People who were not interested initially in having their profiles and pictures up are now very interested in it. And corporations are very excited about being featured, too, and feel that they’re seeing an increased interest in them from students,” she continued.

The architectural portion of the display features a series of six large glass panels, each showcasing donors within various gift categories. Highlighting the display is a world globe that creates a dramatic relief background.

When visitors approach the display a large 55” interactive LCD monitor invites them to experience the multimedia presentation by touching one of the interactive navigation buttons. Presentation modules include A World Of Influence which features global regions where MIIS graduates are at work; Alumni of Distinction; and Tomorrow’s Leaders. Another module is Our Corporate Partners that showcases some of the major corporations that have hired MIIS graduates, and which feature profiles of those corporate partners.

“The entire project development experience was seamless”, says Kathy Joyce. “I was amazed that we were able to develop such a comprehensive project so easily. And being featured in the multimedia presentation has become somewhat of a campus status symbol, as students and staff vie to be included in one of its segments”, she added.

New Presbyterian Rust Medical Center Showcases Dynamic Recognition Display

Dramatic Donor Recognition at Presbyterian Rust Medical Center

Presbyterian Healthcare Services of Albuquerque, New Mexico, furthered its reputation for providing advanced medical care with the recent opening of its dynamic new Rust Medical Center facility – and the unveiling of a dramatic recognition display, designed, fabricated and installed by Planned Legacy.

The integrated display, incorporating a 40” LCD monitor with interactive multimedia presentation, highlights materials and finishes that complement the hospital’s contemporary décor while employing elements such as brushed bronze and silver laminates along with anodized aluminum to create striking accents.

Overall, the display is 32’ wide x 8’ high but extends barely 12” from the wall, requiring unique supports because of the existing architectural masonry and windows. Finally, as with other projects Planned Legacy has created for Presbyterian, the display is shaped to emulate the nearby Sandia Mountains, visible right through the integrated windows.

Located in the main corridor adjacent to the waiting area, the display is situated in a high traffic area where it will be seen and appreciated by the hundreds of staff, visitors and patients who pass by daily. Some of the design features that have been incorporated into the display include:

- 8 mm tempered glass on which donor names are included using 40” h x 23” w vinyl graphic film

- Stainless steel stand-offs that secure the glass to the display

- An historical timeline that has been produced on a vinyl print on acrylic

- A picturesque image produced on vinyl film that surrounds the 40” LCD monitor

- A base finish of high pressure Cherry laminate with access panels for electronic service

- A mountain panel finish comprised of anodized aluminum sheet on brushed bronze and brushed silver laminates

The overall look and feel is engaging and inspiring and, based on comments from visitors, the display is a worthy testament to the many donors and supporters who made the new facility a reality.

“We are very pleased with the donor recognition wall that Planned Legacy developed for our new Rust Medical Center. It is impressive and beautifully complements the architectural design and interiors of the hospital. We are amazed at the number of visitors that stop by the wall to look at the history of Presbyterian and the donors listed on the wall. It is truly magnificent! Working with Planned Legacy was great. They were responsive, on time and on budget, and quick to respond to the usual last minute changes.”

Planned Legacy was selected by the Presbyterian Healthcare Foundation of Albuquerque, New Mexico, to design an integrated donor recognition display that would elevate the Foundation’s message and achievements to a new level.

Blending natural hues with indirect lighting, Planned Legacy captured the colors and textures of the surrounding landscape and Sandia Mountains to create an inspiring panorama for the architectural component of the display. Glass panels, a photomural and historic images were blended in to celebrate donors, honour early Hospital leaders and promote the Foundation’s achievements and activities.

To compliment the recognition display and attract visitors, staff and contributors at first point of contact, a 40″ touch-enabled LCD screen complete with interactive multimedia presentation was added. The presentation showcases the Foundation, its leadership and vision using a combination of text, photos and video.

Visitors to the display can search donor profiles and names, watch video clips of noteworthy individuals and events, and even make a contribution to the Foundation by using a secure credit card swipe that transmits information instantly to the Foundation office.

Enhancing donor recognition, donor loyalty and donor attraction with multimedia presentations

Nonprofits are often hit hard during shaky economic times and reduced budgets can make it difficult to maintain donor loyalty. One of the most economical and effective ways to ensure donor loyalty is through the utilization of multimedia presentations integrated into donor walls, recognition displays, touch-screen kiosks and/or on digital signage.

Vibrant multimedia presentations can emphatically show your donors how much you truly value them, while also saving you time, money and space in the process of attracting new donors, through modules that include enhanced donor recognition, donor profiles, testimonials, volunteer recognition, government and corporate recognition, leader profiles, Board member profiles, current and future projects, historical video and stories about your organization.

Multimedia presentations have a distinct advantage over static donor walls, signage and displays, in that their colorful ever-changing nature never fails to attract. But while multimedia presentations can stand alone, they can also be integrated into classic architectural donor walls and recognition displays to take advantage of the best features of both.

The proven presence of a traditional, tried and true static donor wall, when combined with multimedia messaging, has no peer when it comes to donor attraction and donor recognition capabilities. Additionally, because the multimedia content is digital, space is virtually unlimited and updates can be made instantly and quickly from the comfort of your office. Never again will you lack the time or space needed to create awareness and get your message out in a timely fashion.

Multimedia presentations can help your organization attract, inform, inspire and motivate current and future donors to enthusiastically embrace and share your latest fundraising projects, while persuasively capturing the culture and vision of your organization. The end result is “deep” donor participation and increased loyalty.

The Presbyterian Healthcare Foundation of Albuquerque, New Mexico, selected Planned Legacy to design an integrated recognition display that would elevate the Foundation’s message and achievements to a new level of excitement and discovery.

For the architectural component, Planned Legacy captured the colors and textures of the surrounding landscape and Sandia Mountains, blending natural hues with indirect lighting to create an inspiring panorama. Glass panels, photomurals and historic images celebrate donors, honor early Hospital leaders and promote the Foundation’s achievements and activities.

Complementing the architectural display is an interactive multimedia presentation, viewable on a 40″ touch-enabled LCD screen. The presentation showcases the Foundation, its leadership and vision, and visitors can search donor names and profiles using an alphabetized index, watch video clips of noteworthy individuals and events, and even make a contribution to the Foundation by using a secure credit card swipe that transmits information instantly to the Foundation office.
