Officially opened in October 2006, the United States Air Force Memorial is located just outside the Nation’s capital in Arlington, Virginia. A national place of pride, reverence and remembrance, the Air Force Memorial celebrates the history and valor of the Men and Women of the United States Air Force and its Heritage Organizations.

An integral part of this breathtaking monument is the interactive touch-screen array designed and installed by Planned Legacy. Visitors can use one of three outdoor interactive LCD displays to view names and profiles of Air Force veterans, lists of Memorial Charter Members and photos, and a narrative of Air Force history. Visitors can also use an attached credit card swipe to make spontaneous contributions electronically to the Memorial association.

“A key part of the Memorial is the Charter Sponsor Registry,” said Major General (Ret.) Ed Grillo, President of the United States Air Force Memorial Foundation. “We received more than 140,000 donations, many of them online. We owe all our sponsor donors a great debt of gratitude for helping us to establish this Memorial, and to Planned Legacy’s interactive system for allowing more than 140,000 names to be displayed at the site. Planned Legacy was selected to do this job because of their past performance, our confidence in the company and the fact that they offer the best value for the task at hand.”

Central to the design of the Air Force Memorial, which was created by James Ingo Freed, one of America’s finest architects, are three stainless steel spires that soar skyward, the highest of which ascends 270′ above the 3-acre elevated promontory site. The three spires represent the core values of the Air Force – integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all that is done – and the Air Force’s total force – active, guard and reserve.

Other elements of the Memorial include a bronze Honor Guard (representing all the people of the Air Force), inscription walls and an open glass wall of remembrance, all on a landscaped memorial park and parade ground overlooking the nation’s capital.

United States Air Force Memorial Multimedia PresentationThe three climate-controlled touch-screen kiosks that were developed by Planned Legacy for the Memorial feature an interactive multimedia presentation that includes:

  • Charter Sponsor Registry – a searchable index of more than 140,000 individuals who have supported the Foundation
  • Legacy of Service and Sacrifice – a start-to-finish overview of the Memorial’s construction
  • Dreams Take Flight – a timeline of U.S. Air Force historical milestones and images organized by decade
  • Support the Foundation – information about contributing to the U.S.A.F. Memorial Foundation

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.
