Non-profit organizations continue to embrace interactive donor walls, digital signage and integrated multimedia displays for recognition and promotion

Multimedia presentations delivered via touch-screen kiosks, interactive plasma displays and LCD screens delivering powerful donor recognition, up-to-date fundraising messages and capital campaign promotions

It's been a busy few months since our last newsletter and we've been working on all kinds of new and exciting interactive recognition displays and donor walls. Here are a few of the projects we're either working on or have completed and there are many more in production!

Presbyterian Healthcare Foundation

The Presbyterian Healthcare Foundation in Albuquerque, New Mexico, contracted Planned Legacy to create an integrated recognition display. This beautiful donor wall captures the colors and textures of the surrounding landscape and Sandia Mountains. Glass panels, photomurals and historic images celebrate donors, honor early Hospital leaders and promote the Foundation's many achievements and activities. An interactive multimedia presentation on a large format LCD display showcases the Foundation, its donors, mission and vision, enhancing their stewardship, donor recognition and campaign promotion efforts.

St. Boniface Hospital & Research Foundation

“St. B” is one of western Canada’s oldest acute care teaching hospitals. To communicate its story effectively, recognize donors in a distinguished and meaningful way, and build community awareness, Planned Legacy was engaged to design and fabricate a multi-part display that included architectural design along with both interactive and digital multimedia presentations. Their integrated donor wall features brushed aluminum panels supporting tempered glass upon which donor names are displayed. Separating the glass panels are photomurals of noted St. Boniface researchers and leaders.

The interactive multimedia presentation, viewable in either French or English, provides a detailed history of the hospital, in depth donor recognition with profiles for selected contributors, and much more information on the Hospital and its achievements in both healthcare and the community. The digital presentation provides a continuing showcase of Hospital announcements, local time and weather, current events and other information relevant to visitors, staff and patients.

United States Air Force Memorial

Slated to officially open in October 2006, the United States Air Force Memorial, located just outside Washington, DC, celebrates the history and valor of America’s men and women of the air. 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 narrative of Air Force history. Visitors can also use an attached credit card swipe to make spontaneous contributions electronically to the Memorial association.

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York, integrated a large-format 40-inch LCD display into a custom-designed enclosure to maximize the impact of its message to faculty, students and staff. Several display panels simultaneously honor alumni and contributors, motivate capital campaign support and showcase the Institute's history. The display also incorporates and audio component which features a sensor that adjusts volume based on the surrounding ambient sound level.

North East Health Foundation

Planned Legacy has developed several projects for North East Health, which has facilities in Albany and Troy, NY. These projects have ranged from the concept design and working drawings for a recognition wall at Samaritan Hospital, to the design and fabrication of two integrated recognition displays for the Alzheimer Treatment Centers at the Hawthorne Ridge and Mary Doyle Rockwell facilities respectively.

The two Alzheimer Center projects each involved the design and programming of an interactive multimedia presentation viewed on 32-inch LCD displays fitted with infrared overlays. Visitors can view descriptions of services and programs, search donor names and profiles and access other relevant information. As part of this project Planned Legacy also designed and fabricated two custom enclosures to house the screens in an innovative and contemporary setting.

St. John’s Regional Medical Center Foundation

A member of the 40+ hospital Catholic Healthcare West organization, St. John's Regional Medical Center chose Planned Legacy to design and install an interactive multimedia presentation and integrated donor wall at its St. John’s Pleasant Valley Hospital facility in Camarillo, California. This project will enable site visitors to learn about the Hospital’s history and mission, as well as to gain an understanding of its future plans and programs. Donor recognition, planned giving and an overview of the Foundation are also included. The multimedia presentation will be viewed on a 46-inch interactive LCD display integrated into a contemporary donor wall that will compliment the Hospital’s environment.

Jewish Foundation of Milwaukee

The Jewish Foundation of Milwaukee wanted to created an interactive multimedia presentation that would promote the goals and achievements of the organization while also furthering its Book of Life endowment project. Planned Legacy, working in close collaboration with the JFM, designed and installed a 40-inch interactive LCD display that visitors can use to learn about the Foundation and its mission, while also providing a historical perspective of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation, the governing body. In addition to this dynamic multimedia presentation, Planned Legacy will also design and fabricate a custom enclosure for the display when the JFM completes its move to new facilities.

Mount Carmel Health System

A major healthcare provider in Columbus, Ohio, with multiple facilities, Mount Carmel Health System has contracted Planned Legacy to create three interactive multimedia presentations and recognition displays that will showcase the health system’s history, recognize contributors, promote upcoming initiatives and further the organization’s vision. Each presentation will be viewed on a 40-inch LCD display equipped with an infrared touch overlay that allows visitors to interact with the display directly. The presentations will each be housed in their own custom-designed enclosure and will be located at different locations throughout the Columbus.
